Making Journal Covers...

 
 
The Permission 2 Play group gathered together
 
to create handmade journal covers...
 
 
 
Choose a Fabric...





 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Journal Cover.....Class Samples





 
Instructor: Virginia Gregory
 
 
 
 
 

 
 
Instructor: Nancy Bryant
 
Will be our Steam Press Queen
 





 





 
Students stitching up their journal covers...
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
After stitching.....comes the pressing




 
 
Here is a demo of the construction:

 
Stiff interfacing has been pressed
 
onto the wrong side of the journal cover
 
 
 
 
 
 
A strip of paper backed fusible web has been ironed
 
to the wrong side of the lining of the journal cover.
 
A slit has been cut into the fusible web.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
The inside flaps have been layered on top
 
of the right side of the lining...
 
raw edges together
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
The journal cover has been layered on top
 
of the flaps and lining.
 
All of the layers are pinned together.






 
A seam is sewn through all layers all the way around
 
the edge of the interfacing
 
 


 
 

The seam is trimmed to 1/4 inch
 




 
 
Reach through the slit and turn the cover right side out







 
After turning, be sure to push out all of the corner points
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Turn the flaps toward the inside of the cover





 
 
Remove the fusible paper from the opening
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Carefully iron the fusible opening...
 
the slit nearly disappears.
 
It is not visible on the inside of the journal cover
 
after the book has been inserted.
 
 
 
 
 
 
Place the journal under the flaps
 
 
 
 
 
 
This process only takes a few minutes...
 
so the students made another one!
