I love Thursdays. Husband works Monday-Thursday every week (4 10's) and so in my mind Thursday marks the beginning of my weekend. In light of that little bit of
randomness, Happy Thursday!!
Let's rewind back one and a half months. So I get this email from a very nice lady saying she digs the scripture cover on the ol' blog. She then proceeds to ask me if I would be willing to make some for her church's book store. I say "Heck YES!" (not a direct quote....I was much more professional) And so begins the supply shopping, invoice making, and stressing. Wow! Random bit of fun-ness. Right? Unfortunately this is all going down whilst I'm frantically trying to make costumes for Halloween and get some stuff done for Christmas. That little bit of fun-ness has turned into a big fat chore. So typical me I've procrastinated and am on frantic mode again. In spite of this I've decided to waste some more time to create this tutorial for you. That's how much I love you!! Now, be aware that I kept forgetting to take pictures so I'm going to have to explain in words how to do some steps.....this is really a simple project though so you'll be fine. If you have questions though email me and I'll help you decode the directions.
Okay, yes you need to do some simple math. Measure your book top to bottom side to side. You'll need to measure the width of the spine and add that to your "width" measurement. I then added an inch each way for my seam allowance.
The interior flaps (aka: the little doohickeys that keep the cover on the book) will be folded in half lengthwise. There's no real science to the width measurement. They just need to be the same length top to bottom as the main body of the cover.
Did I confuse the crap out of you? I'm really good at explaining things in a nonsensical way. This really is such a simple project though. Once you get the pieces cut out you'll be able to see how they're supposed to go together. E-mail me with questions if you have them. Happy Thursday!
