This post wraps up the Quiet Book series. Hope you enjoyed seeing all the pages.
This page was not part of my original plans for the book, but when I asked my sister what farm animals my niece A likes (for this PAGE) she said that A really likes wild animals especially hippos, monkeys, and giraffes. So the hunt for an idea for an animal page began. The idea was hatched when I saw this BLOG POST. For more history on this page, see this POST.
To make this page, I first traced out the animal outlines on paper and then transferred them to felt. I sewed the bodies onto the background with a sewing machine. I stitched in the details on the face by hand making sure to include the snap on the back. For the hippo, giraffe, and monkey, I sewed the snap behind an eye. For the lion, I sewed the snap onto the back of the mane and then sewed the face to the mane. I made sure the snap on the back of the head and the snap on the page lined up. Now you can switch the animal's heads around.
