How to Embroider Your Own Book Covers for Back-to-Schoolcomments (4) August 22nd, 2014
Smooth the fabric into the hoop so that it firmly sticks to the stabilizer. Pin it along the line butted up against the edge of the hoop. By stretching out 1 inch of fabric from the hoop, you are approximating the condition of the fabric when it's covering the book-your embroidery will look great, not stretched out!
Embroider your design. I picked a curlycue font to spell out "Math" and dotted the rest of the cover will little circular-shaped embroidery designs.
After you finish embroidering, remove the fabric from the hoop and gently tear away the stabilizer. Now you are about two minutes away from an adorable book cover. Simply fold 3 inches of the ends up, right sides together with the cover. Pin in place and run the top and bottom edges through your serger (from folded edge to folded edge). Turn the flap to the inside of the cover and stretch it over your book.
After you make this project, show off your work to other members!
