With my latest fabric collection, "Teddy Bear's Picnic" there is an awesome quilt panel that can be made into a very cute cot quilt and matching teddy. The perfect gift to whip up for a new baby in your life.
But if you are not a "quilt person" here is the perfect tutorial to turn your panel into a cute cloth book. Pair this up with the matching teddy and you have the perfect gift set!
Simply follow the steps below to make your own. If you want to grab a panel check with your favourite Melly & me stockist or you can grab one in the shop.
6. Cut 5 pieces of lightweight fusible fleece that are 1/2" smaller in height and width than your pages . Please note that the fleece will add a lot of bulk to your book spine. If your machine has trouble getting through very thick sewing then please substitute the fleece for a much thinner interfacing. If using fleece like I have, make sure it is very thin and lightweight.
8. Place your cover page (with interfacing) and your 2nd page (without interfacing) on top of each other, right sides together. With the interfaced side facing up, pin along the top, bottom and left had edges. (please note your interfacing will be 1/4" smaller around all edges than shown in this image)
