I am presently turning the samples from the last post into book covers. Here's how I went about it.
I have placed this on my lining fabric and used my ruler to cut an extra 1/4 inch all the way around.
Turn inside out, then use something like a knitting needle to push out the corners and edges. Press.
A little bit more couching with the cord and the addition of a button or bead add just a little style. You could also add a motif to the front cover, or an ATC, but I like to put those on plainer covers, so they don't look overdone.
Of course I still have quite a few left to make and they will all be different, so I will post those designs when I have finished all of them.
OOPs - For those of you who are very observant - yes, I did change samples half way through the photographs. The earlier cover was made from fabric paper (which is why it was not quite long enough - it was made before I bought the books), whilst the second half showed a cover made with one of the samples from my last post.
Don't just take time to create - make time!
