Intro: Felt Book Cover: Father's Day Gift
Today I would like to share with you an idea for Father's Day. A handmade Book Cover inspired by superheroes. In this eternal battle of Marvel vs DC Comics, today won Deadpool and Batman)))
So, pick your Book/Notebook/Journal/Diary/Album and let's start!
Step 1: SUPPLIES
- Felt (diferent colors)
- Sewing needles
- Sewing pins
- All-purpose threads
- A cloth tape measure
- Printed template
Step 2: SIZES
First measure your book from back side to front side and add 1 cm (0,5 cm on each edge). Then note the height of the book, also add 1 cm (0,5 cm on each edge). This will be a base for cover.
My results are: 32 x 22,5 cm
For inside pocket, you will need a piece of felt 6cm wide.
For bookmark - about 1cm x 30cm
Step 3: CUTTING OUT
You need to get:
- 1 base
- 2 rectangular pieces for pockets
- 1 bookmark (if you need)
- Logo pieces (Use your prepared paper templates to easily design process)
Step 4: SEWING
First you need to sew together small logo parts.
After, arrange the logo where you want, pin it, and sew on.
When your top is ready, turn it, and pin rectangular pieces for pockets and bookmark.
Sew on all around with the running stitch.
I use basic Running Stitch for entire project.
Now you Cover is ready! Insert your book and enjoy it!
