For Ada’s first birthday this year, I made her some play mats. I used the left over vinyl from the picnic quilt for the back and made two of them. One was a under the sea theme and the other was a flower garden. They were fun on their own but would also make great pages for a busy book.
first cut out the size mat or page you want and sew on the first things you want on it
then sew on the dirt or sand on the bottom
press down the bottom strip
cut the vinyl to match
sew on the velcro where you want your pieces to go
make the pieces you want with velcro on backs
