I promised to share with you the little book of patterns that I made on Friday night at the Attic.
All the pieces were prepared for us and all we had to do is assemble. Out came the glue -- yes, GLUE! Two pieces of cardboard are glued to the fabric to make the book. The glue has to be spread thin and evenly. Yep, we had to put our fingers in it to accomplish this! The fabric is wrapped tautly and once it is in place, then we glued a coordinating piece of paper to the inside after strategically placing our ribbon across the center.
Vickie Jennett (Needlework Press) recommended that we wait to affix our stitched piece and the inside pattern piece until all of this glue had dried. As she told us a little bit more about the books we "massaged" our front and back covers to ensure there were no air or glue bubbles.
I waited until I was home to cut out my stitching - there's a nun stitch that runs all along the outside border. I attached a thin piece of interfacing to the back of my stitching and then glued it on the cover. My accordion pleated pattern pages also are glued into the book. Easy peasy.
Quick to stitch and easy to assemble. If you would like to make your own, be sure to check out SANQ, volume #32, Summer 2003!
