Have you ever seen a lovely fabric book in the shop as a panel, but didn’t get one because you didn’t know what to do with it?? We have two of them in the stock and as I was making them I thought I’ll take some pictures of the process and share with you how it’s done.
The trickiest part in making a fabric book is the order of the pages. Before you start sewing them together, just “make” the book as test pinning the pages together on the spine. This should help you to find out which two pairs go together. Then you just have to be careful to keep the top and bottom of the pages the same when placing them right sides together for joining with wadding.
If you don’t have nice thin wadding, you can also use an interfacing, best would be soft or medium strength iron on interfacing, which you iron onto every page and continue constructing in the same way. This would give the book the same strength as wadding but not the bulk.
Thank you for such a clear tutorial. The books looks really cute.
Thank you, I’m planning to put out a tutorial every now and then, specially for not too complicated things.
