|Book cushions and notebook covers together|
|I really like the lined zipped pocket - I'm going to do one for myself (not Harry Potter themed, though!)|
|I think the colour of the zips and the font look great with the fabric - and a very suitable Harry Potter colour|
I was able to construct the notebook covers as instructed on the video. First steps include the zip, the pocket, joining front to back and covering everything with fusible fleece. No problems, though I had to make a trip to get fusible fleece. I do have some but couldn’t find it. Sadly that statement says a lot about my organisation and points to what I need to do in the New Year once I’m properly mobile.
At this stage on the video, the embroidery is done. As with the book cushion, I wasn’t using plain fabric but the less patterned Harry Potter fabric. I’m a novice with machine embroidery and was concerned about placing their names (again using the Harry Potter font) in the right place as I wasn’t going to be able to hoop the fabric. However, I went ahead, using spray adhesive on the tearaway stabilizer and pinned the fabric on top to the stabilizer at the edges of the hoop as advised. I had marked the fabric I was sewing with a pressure line rather than pencil etc to ensure my embroidery would be straight. I’m glad to say that it worked out well.
