This is lovely Jenny, I love the fabric too. Great job, love Chris
Thank you. It went together really well. Its for my oldest daughter, who goes everywhere with a book and a bottle of water. She's 30 today. Where does the time go.
I never thought of a cover for a paperback book. It's a good idea! I've never heard of "fold-over elastic" before. How is it different than regular elastic?
Its a decorative, very soft elastic that can be used to enclose and gather a fabric edge by stretching it.
Thanks for the info. I'll have to keep an eye out for it.
Beautiful!!!!Great work..Love the Fabric!!
Thank you. From cutting and pressing the fabric to the end of stitching, it took about 45 minutes. The hardest part was that the elastic loop is placed inside out. It'll go faster next time. Every design I've purchased from Moosebstitchin.net has sewn out very well. I really like her zipper bags.
Interesting. Was this made in the hoop? I'd wondered about covers for paperbacks, but all mine are different sizes!
Mine are different sizes also. Show a picture of it opened.
Yes, totally made in the hoop. Took three hoopings. This cover fits books up to 5 1/2" wide by 8 1/2" tall. My book is 4" by 7 1/2", and stays in there securely. I'll post a picture of it opened in a bit.
