That is SO cool Shelley!! Well done! I think I need to start working on one now for next year, as it will take me a while!

I just used cotton drill for pages and felt for everything else, other than outside cover which was denim :D

I'm excited about this project but don't have a lot of skill or experience or "stash" to use. Will see if I can make one page and go from there.

I have a quiet book from my own childhood.

Shelly that is too cool! Well done. Maybe I'll have to add that to my list of eventual projects. DS2 is probably too old for it but all else fails I could make it for my nephew's b-day next October.
