You’ll find the pattern for this Bible Quiet Book in my friend’s Etsy store.

This post will step you through how to put together the next felt page in the Quiet Book, ‘Baby Moses.’

    Okay so you have inspired me to make a quiet book. Where do I get the patterns? Maybe I am just missing it.

      That makes me so excited! I’m sure you’ll love how it turns out :).
      The link to get the patterns is here: http://etsy.me/2apXDW3.
      I’ve tried to keep the link on each blog post under, “Bible Quiet Book,” but maybe that’s too subtle. I’ll work on that :).
      Thank you!
