Here is my first "real" tutorial!!! I've shown how to do a lot of stuff...but this time I really got a supply list and took pictures of every step....it was harder than I thought...a lot of things I just take for granted...it was hard to break it down sometimes....anyway....here is how to make those cute fabric bookcovers I made over the weekend...luckily Bessie, my sewing machine, was in good spirits....First gather your supplies:
tape measure-check out the cute red ones I gave out to the soul sisters for Valentines Day!
fabric-32"x12"....or about an inch bigger all around the size notebook you choose
Measure your fabric and cut....if you are using a standard composition book like I did, cut it 32"x12".
Turn all edges in about a 1/4" and press....then turn them all edges in again and press once more so there are no raw edges....keeping the notebook handy to ensure a perfect fit...making sure you have enough room to sew along the top and bottom hems.
Voila!!! Your cute new notebook!! This is for my ebay notebook...I was going to upgrade to a spreadsheet...this is an improvement ovet the purple spiral notebook I had last year.
