|This is basically, the end result.|
|Find your book you want to cover turn both top and bottom edge of fabric make sure it's|
about 3 inches or 8 cm
|Slide those two edges in one side and then the other, adjust till fitted.|
|Make sure book closes with cover!|
This is how I was taught to cover all school books, just doing this with fabric now!
|Remove a press with iron, do not finish edge till motif is sewn down|
|mark with watercolor pencil |
the flower was sewn down, then the tatting with ribbon.
I stitched with french knots in white, to show off white in flower.
|Will stitch edge on sides making this a removable cover|
|Now that the stitching is done, I just turned only the edge that shows when opening the book, not the other edges that are torn I want them to lie flat, so they are not visible underneath fabric on top of book.|
|Stitch this together for that perfect fit and your done.|
cover can be removed and placed back on by bending one book cover backwards a little bit.
