As I was working on projects for Pocket Week, I wanted to make some things to go into all the pockets I was making. This little book fits into just about any pocket, but would work well with the Pocket Quiet Book as well.
This post was inspired by Crafty Staci. She had a whole series of posts in which she used fabric for a “traditional” paper craft. When I saw this post on single-sheet books, I knew I had to try it out in fabric!
I’ll admit, the first time was not successful. I used a sheet of felt. It was much too thick, and the end result was not beautiful, though it is being re-purposed as a needle book, and does a fine job.
I gave it another shot, using regular fabric and HeatNBond. The result was quick, easy (can’t beat no-sew!), and looks great! Here is what you need:
– Plain Fabric (a fat quarter is enough for more than one)
– Fabric with a design for cutting out appliques
– HeatNBond Ultra
– Fabric Pen
Press flat, so that you have a 4 1/2″ by 6″ rectangle with four flaps. Iron down, flip, iron again. Don’t over iron, it can make the fabric very stiff.
