Vegetable Garden Quietbook Template

I actually finished this page several months ago, but I never posted a template, so I decided to get one made up!

This one is my own pattern but I got inspiration for this page at Leafy Treetop Spot. Tricia's page is so cute! I just loved her idea for a vegetable garden so much, I had to try it.

You can find a printable PDF of the template HERE.




I cut the garden rows piece in dark brown, and sewed it onto a sky-blue piece of felt. I just eyeballed the holes. They aren't perfect, but oh well!  I also left the bottom unsewn. If a veggie or two gets pushed down through the holes, it can be easily retrieved.

To make the veggies, I sewed the green parts together first. Make sure to do any embroidery work before sewing the pieces together (on the veggies and the signs). Then, I took my sewn greenery,  sandwiched it between the two veggie pieces, and sewed the whole thing together. I hand-sew all of the small pieces. It may seem to take longer, but I have a hard time sewing small pieces of felt effectively on the machine.




I really hope those little vegetable don't get lost.  I had a reader suggest attaching a ribbon to each vegetable so they don't get misplaced, and I think I will do that. They were a bit tedious to work up, I would be a shame to have to keep making more to replace the lost pieces. 

Happy sewing!
