So my daughter tells me this distraught story about how her book for Math is all bent and really needs a cover. Well, try finding a cover right now in the middle of the school year, lol.
So we just made one real quick. This was so simple to do. We took yardage of a cotton knit material I had on hand, but you could easily use a t- shirt that your child grew out of or that has a stain/rip in a place that wont show once you cut this out.
Just take your book and lay the front, back and the ream of the book completely flat. We rotary cut right next to the top/bottom edges with no seam allowances. Then add 4″ onto both ends and trim the ends. Fold the end over the front flap and mark the crease and do the same for the back but pull just slightly to stretch the material every so much to make the cover fit snug. Match the right sides together and serge or zigzag stitch along the top and bottom edges with the ends folded in at the creases. Reverse the ends to be right side out and install the book.
Here is ours:
My Daughter really wanted a T embroidered on it- so While it was here and the embroidery machine was available I did as was requested 😉
So there ya have it- A book cover that took about 50 cents and 5 minutes to make.. She was one happy camper!!
So a friend of mine asked me to take blank t-shirts and embroider the “Peace” embroidery from my gallery onto the shirts for party favors for her sons B-day party!! So 21, yes TWENTY ONE, embroideries later… here they are!!! Wow that was alot of the same embroidery, hehe!
Also, I added 3 sets of boxer briefs to my Etsy store!! They are packed 3 to a set and I have 2/3, 4/5 and 6/7 available now if anyone needs them!! 😀 They are the boxers from this picture, except the sports one in the middle went to my son!!
So I have had this idea/design bouncing around forever. And I finally drafted and made this purse. I purchased embroidery/applique today and immediately thought of this fabric/color combo/bag style.
The top band and strap are interfaced with a heavy stabilizer *peltex i believe* and the “bottom” of this bag is soft and “slouchy”.
Sometimes I look at it and LOVE it, other times.. I think “What was I thinking?”
Oh and if anyone has anything better than “Slouchy Bag” for a name, please DO suggest it! LOL
It is being stocked at Retro Femme on Friday!
