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.

Vegetable Garden Felt Quiet Book Page Template Pattern

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!

  1. Guess you could attach the veggies with small pieces of velcro and just tuck them into an opening, rather than tucking them into a pocket as such for the planting/reaping?
    I make tactile resources for visually impaired children and using different textured fabrics for the veggies would add interest for special needs children too.
    Its a nice little activity this!

    1. Thanks, Havalah! I hope you do. My son hasn’t had a chance to play with it (my book isn’t put together yet) but I hope he loves it.

  2. Oh my goodness how I wish I could sew. This is absolutely amazing! It caught my eye immediately at when I saw your pic at the Tatertots & Jello link-up. I wonder if I could figure out a way to make this no-sew ;-).
