A while back, I made a quiet book using images from Cricut Design Space, but I know not all of you pay for Cricut Access. So I have recreated the book with my own SVGs so you can make it for free! All of my cut files can be used for personal or commercial use. If you know someone who may be interested, please share the link to my page, not the files themselves. *Please note, the pictures in this post are from my Cricut Community Project, not the new SVGs. If you want the link to those files click here.*

Cover Page: If you purchase the same felt pages that I did, you will not need to alter them. If you chose a different base, trim all pages to an 8×8 inch square. The title is done using heat transfer vinyl. Always make sure to mirror images before cutting HTV!
Candy Color Sort: The letters and color waves are heat transfer vinyl. The pocket and circles are made with felt cut with the Cricut Maker. I always cut felt using the rotary blade and pink cutting mat. Stitch brown square onto backing on three sides to create a pocket for the pieces to go in.
Shape Match: This is a relatively simple page, but my toddler actually helped me cut it out! White is all done using heat transfer vinyl, everything else is felt. This is a great page to do some decorative stitching!
Cupcake Counting: Confession time: I made the cupcakes before I knew what size my book would be. I was able to make it squish on but there was originally a 9th cupcake that had to be given a new home. I have left the design this size in Cricut Design Space, (so as not to confuse those going off the picture as a reference), but if I were to do it again I would size the cupcakes down slightly. This is a great page to do if you have small htv scraps! All numbers, words, and sprinkles are htv. The cupcakes and pocket are felt. For this pocket, keep the right side open and sew up the other three sides.
Train Pattern Practice: Ok, I love this one. I love it because it just came to me laying in bed one night. Those are the best kind of projects! The railroad sign and tracks are done with heat transfer vinyl everything else is felt.
Season Match: Words are htv as are the lines on the sled and the watermelon seeds. You may notice these pieces are several layers thick. Some of the images were fairly complex and needed multiple layers so I added layers to the others to keep things consistent. Note, there is no pocket pictured. It can be found on the next page. The seasons took up a lot of room, so I had to place the pocket on the backside. So, yes, the alphabet page is just a filler. But, if you add a fun heat transfer vinyl (this is metallic from Joann) it will be a favorite page for the kiddos. I highly recommend the metallic for a texture reason. It is so smooth I couldn’t help tracing the letters! I didn’t include a SVG for the alphabet page. You can just use whatever font you like best!
Assembly: You are nearly done! Sit back, put on a show, and do a blanket stitch around each set (front and back) of pages. If you don’t know how to blanket stitch (I didn’t!) watch this video. Finally, weave a piece of yarn through the stitches in the binding. Tie off. Glue a piece of felt to cover your binding. See image below.
You are done! If you enjoyed this quiet book make sure to check out my Church one as well! If you have any questions feel free to comment below or contact me. If you do make your own, please share it with me! Happy Craftin’!
