Piano Quiet Book Page {Free Printable Pattern}

Making a music themed quiet book page can be a great way to encourage a child to "make" music.  I made this piano quiet book page for the boys since they love to play on the piano.  Plus, I am a piano teacher after all and I think that this page is a fun way to teach them about the instrument that I love. This piano quiet book page comes with a free printable pattern.

This quiet book page was in the works for a few months before I finally managed to finish sewing it.  And I absolutely love how it turned out.  I especially love that the sheet music is all haphazard just like the sheet music usually is on my piano.  True story.

This page is made entirely out of felt, except for the notes on the sheet music.  I used a We R Memory Keepers Sew Stamper with the music doodle head to create the notes on the sheet music.  Since the stamp is originally intended for paper, I wasn't entirely sure whether it would work on the felt or not.  To my surprise, it worked amazing.  It just took a really long time to dry.  It probably took close to a few weeks before it would stop rubbing off.

Piano Quiet Book Page Template & Instructions

To make this quiet book page, print the template and cut out the pieces.

Instructions:
  1. Sew the white keyboard on a piece of 9" x 12" felt.
  2. Sew six vertical lines roughly an inch apart on the white keyboard.  These will become the white keys of the piano.
  3. Arrange the three sheet music pieces above the piano keys and sew them into place.
  4. Sew the five black keys onto the white keyboard area.
  5. Arrange the music notes around the page and sew them into place.
  6. Create the sheet music using either a Sew Stamper or black permanent marker.  Keep in mind that the ink may take awhile to dry completely.

  4. I really like how the sheet music turned out, faded and smeared slightly, it makes it look a touch more... Real. Totally thought you cut bits off some sheet musics ribbon or fabric for them.
