It’s been a while since I have touched fabric. But the idea for this page just popped into my head one day and I knew I had to share it with you! It’s actually quite simple and fun for your little explorer.
As with any quiet book or other felt projects, make sure you are sewing the top pieces first. So you would sew the bug body pieces onto the top layer of the background, then sew the top to the back very last. The flower, stem and mason jar are sewn directly to the page. I also just eye-balled a rectangle to use as a pocket for the magnifying glass.
The rock and grassy brush are connected to the page at the very bottom so that they can be flipped down to reveal the bugs hiding. The leaves are sewn to the page where they meet the stem.
I also clipped the end off a lollipop stick and put it in the handle of the magnifying glass to give it some stability.
