Composition Book Cover Tutorial
What you will need:
One piece of 12 x 24 inch fabric
Piece of medium weight fusible interfacing
(Click on any picture to see details.)
This is an example of the interfacing. It gives the fabric a bit of body and keeps the cover on the book a bit better. It also makes lighter color fabric less see through so the composition book doesn't show.
Open your composition book up on top of the interfacing. Cut a piece of interfacing the same size as the book.
Center the interfacing on the wrong side of your fabric. Keeping it in place turn fabric over and iron according to interfacing directions. If you iron directly on the interfacing it will probably melt and bubble and wreck your iron. I've done it. Not fun.
Sew a straight stitch down the twice folded seam, backstitching at the beginning and end. Repeat the same steps for the other long side of the fabric.
On one of the short sides of the fabric fold down 1/2 an inch and iron and then fold again and iron.
Sew a line as close to the edge as you can on the top and bottom flaps on each side of the cover. Remember to backstitch. Clip all loose threads.
