What's the big deal about Young Living

Handmade Felt Books

I've posted before about my 14 year old daughter making these little handmade felt books as gifts for her little sisters.

I'm revisiting it today because I think these would make dandy gifts for birthdays, baby showers, Easter baskets, etc. that would be simple for you to make.

One neat feature is that they can be personalized.  These include pages that were appropriate for the skill level of each sister.

Lacing and tying practice

Counting and number recognition

Letter recognition

Zipper practice

Just for fun!

Another neat element about these handmade felt books is that felt does not ravel and therefore doesn't need the edges hemmed or finished in any way. My MaddieLynn used hot glue or a simple machine stitch to assemble these.

Simple and sweet! Try it for yourself!

  1. How cute! I make felt stuff all the time and I love how easy it is to work with. Your daughter did a great job! :)


  2. wow! This is a great idea! I’ve been trying to think of something for my two older grandkids- ages 2 and almost 1. This is so good! And another advantage to felt books is, if they are dropped (our former church (when our kids were young) had no nursery for 3yr olds and older on Sun. nights), they don’t make a noise:)

  3. Love this. I’m going to show it to my girls and hope that they get the hint!

  4. That’s cute! MY 13 year old daughter is helping me with a felt Bible book for her little brothers. She is very crafty, too! Recently, we went to a campaign meeting for our congressman. She took her free T-shirt home and tie-dyed it so it would be ‘cool!’ She has also enjoyed reading your daughter’s posts.

  5. this looks easy. Where did you find the instructions for making the book? I am trying to make things from scratch and this looks like a great gift that my daughter would love to make for her younger sibblings. Thanks for sharing.

  6. You did a great job! I’ve seen some really adorable felt books like this and thought it would be a good place to put worn out clothes pieces, like a zipper from a pair of pants with wholly knees, or an overall strap, or button for a pocket, etc. Inexpensive way to source parts, anyway!

  7. Oh man! This is just fabulous! You should be so proud, Connie.

  8. Oh, this is going on our project list for sure! Thanks far sharing it again!

  9. This is a great idea. I love the way it can be personalized. And I want to know how you got to be first at Works for Me Wednesday!

  10. I have been dying to make a quiet book, I’ve been looking for cute felt ideas. Thanks for the pictures!

  11. These books are darling and so thoughtful. Might be a nice project for our Girl Scout troop. Thanks for the inspiration :)

  12. Your daughter made those? how sweet! She did an amazing job -SO creative!

    hipster clothing stores. You are only recommended to
    use this type of dress as long as your body allows it.
    Many people are interested in knowing these and thus, if one is looking to start a fashion website, all they have to do is to include this aspect to their portal along with pictures as well.
