Miss B's felt book cover tutorial


Hi, this is Miss B here, today I want to show you my 
Felt book cover tutorial!!!!

You will need:
two pieces of felt 
(one for the pockets and one for the cover)
sharp scissors
a button
some decorations, I chose felt butterflies from Spotlight.
photo album or note book.
thread and needle.
 and a sewing machine



First you will need to measure your first piece of felt around your book with one cm excess.(for the sewing)
Sizes may vary from book to book.








 Next you will need to measure the pockets for the cover leave, about two or three cm  from the middle so you can slip the covers in nice and snugly.



Then cut your felt neatly.



And place your decorations where you plan them to be.


Chose your thread colour. I chose white.


Sew on decorations first.


Then sew on your pockets.


Cut all the excess off.


Hand stitch a beautiful button on.


Cut the button hole and..........


Viola!!!


Your felt book cover is complete.

I did this for my school passion project, I hope you liked it.
Good bye
From Miss B.

  3. Move over Deb, Miss B has out done you!! Not only a gorgeous project with authentic spelling mistake "choose/ chose" which i make all the time aged 36, but so clever - the sewing, the choice of colours, skills & all round final result is just lovely. Congratulations Miss B. I'll have my 4 children having a look at this, we love working with felt as you don't have to hem it. A tip for young players using felt bags/ books - you can remove little pillling balls with a razor, i know, a girl at Kikki-K told me when i purchased a felt laptopt bag. Glee. Love your work Miss B, welcome to crafty blog land, love Posie
