|It is only pinned together here. I'm just testing the size of my pieces.|
We love Harry Potter in this house. Well, the girls and I do. Hubby likes it just fine, but I don't think he loves the series like we do. I am making two of these. One for each daughter. My book will be a little friendlier than Harry's.
Here is the book I am making my version of:
|I found this picture here|
I started out with pieces of foam and some off-white fabric.
Then I cut the foam to about 9" x 12"
Then I cut a strip of my fabric about 12" wide and long enough to wrap around one long side and both short sides of my foam (I didn't measure this part). I made a little fold in the fabric and stitched allllllllll the way along the long part. I did this over and over again until it was wide enough to cover the end of my foam. These are my book pages.
But sadly, I wasn't able to finish them both the day I started because I ran out of thread.
A week later, I have a 500m long spool of thread and I am back to work! Here are my 'pages' pinned into place around my book form.
Then, I hemmed my fun fur all the way around and checked it for size.
I think it is looking pretty good so far! I haven't decided if my next step will be they eyes or the teeth.
So far, the only items I needed to purchase for this project have been the foam ($2 each) and the new spool of thread. Everything else I already had hanging around the house.
I hope to have an update next week. I hope everything else works out as well as my pages have. They turned out almost exactly as I had pictured.
Thanks for looking!Pin It
