Like the title says it requires no sewing experience at all. None. So you can build with me or just read my Instructable. Hope you enjoy it!
Note: the books may have cover changes. this is because I lent one of the Three I have, and got this one the day before.
Step 1: Sketch Out Your Plan.
1) How big do I want it to be? This includes measuring you book, materials using, etc.
2) Do I have enough material? Enough fabric, glue, etc.
3)What should I use for my Backbone?
Fabric, any kind will do.
Hot Glue gun and Glue.
Some kind of binding unit. i.e. Hook and loops, Velcro, etc.
Backbone unit. i.e. Wood/Metal sheets.
Hot Glue Gun and Glue.
Cut pieces of White board.
Step 2: Measuring and Placing
Step 3: The Trickiest Part
Now if you chose magnet like I did, read carefully.
You need to put the magnet over the enclosed magnet, fold the book in the case, and trace the outer magnet.
Next you need to take the magnet, put some glue on it, tuck it under the pocket and glue it to the frame by the circle you marked.
You got that?
Step 4: The Strip
First, measure a piece longer than needed.
Next, fold the current piece in thirds, long ways.
Now glue it to the main frame. (Picture 3)
Step 5: Making It All Pretty
Cut a piece, say it with me now, "bigger than you need it to be" and fold the all the edges over.
Measure the right size you need it to be, and glue in place, but leave a gap near the strip.
Step 6: Finishing Touches
Glue it in place and seal the hole from earlier.
I glued the strip totally down to make sure it doesn't move.
Step 7: Conclusion
