Step 1: Materials
The fabric I am using in this project is felt. However, other type of fabrics such as cotton, silk, satin, polyester etc could be used as well.
Step 2: Dimensions
I prepared cardboard templates (optional) for tracing purpose. Trace with chalk or pencil with following sizes:
1 piece of 20 x 14 cm for the main body of the cover
2 pieces of 7 x 14 cm for the flaps of the cover
Step 3: Get Prepared
(i) Secure your patterns with sewing pins.
(ii) Draw stitching line across the pattern with distance 0.5 cm (optional). The purpose for this is consistency in sewing straight line.
Step 4: Sewing Machine
We are using Brother Inov-is 1.0 sewing machines in school. We have these step by step images to guide students who are new with the equipment.
If you don't own a sewing machine and keen to learn how to hand sew. Consider visiting learning this basic hand sewing stitches tutorial: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q_CaLBKLYL
Step 5: After Sewing
This is how the stitch pattern looks like if you have selected straight stitch option. You may keep the thread visible as part of the design or flip the fabric inside out to hide the stitches.
Step 6: Decoration
My favourite time! Unleash your creativity and imagination, then show the world what you've got!
