Dress Up Quiet Book Page

Posted by MarieA on Friday, March 7th, 2014

Hey Y'all! I'm Sami, content creator for my blog Project Art Room!
I designed this quiet book page and my mom, Marie, made it! We're a great team!!
I work mostly with paper, paint, etc. while my mom is all about fabric!!
I loved paper dolls when I was little, and I know I would have loved this!
This pattern has 2 dresses, but feel free to design your own!
(if you do, instagram it using the hashtag #rbSandM and tag me @supercoolchic16 & @rileyblakedesigns, I would love to see your version!!)
So lets get into the instructions!

Choose the hair you like, and repeat.
Repeat for armoire, shoes, clothes & underclothes.
 
Step 3:
Make the Armoire
Quiet Book Armoire
Trace armoire shape on paper backed fusible web x2.
(once with the tab on the right, and once with it on the left)
Fuse the shape with the tab on the left, to the back of the armoire (outside) fabric.
Fuse the shape with the tab on the right, to the back of the armoire liner fabric.

Embellish as desired.
 
Step 4:
Clothes Pocket
Quiet Book Clothes Pocket
Iron a 4 1/2"x5 1/2" piece of fusible web on the back of the liner fabric
Cut that piece down to 4"x5".
Position it approximately 2 inches from the bottom edge, and 1 1/2 from right side, and iron it in place.
Cut a piece of liner fabric 4"x5" and fold it in half.
That is the flap of your pocket.
Align that piece with the piece you ironed on and sew around using a straight stitch or blanket stitch.
Sew opposite piece of velcro beside the pocket.
