Because felt doesn't fray I placed the different textured fabrics behind the felt and then top stitched around my shapes. That worked much better than dealing with the hems of the other materials. Or so I imagine, I didn't even try it that way.
Here are all the pages I made together:
In order (in the book, I made them from simplest to most complex) the pages are:
|The Brown Bear|
|The Red Bird|
|The Yellow Duck|
|The Blue Horse|
|The Green Frog|
|The Purple Cat|
|The White Dog|
|The Black Sheep|
|The Gray Elephant|
Each animal is on the color of the next animal so we can "read" the book. I think if I could do it over again, I would have put them all on white so that I wouldn't have had to change my bobbin between pages and also because I don't like some of the combinations.
Given the number of beads, you may not want to let a young child play with a book like this unattended.
