Jess from OklaRoots is back with another great tutorial on Bonnie’s Hoop ‘n Sew Twitter Pages notebook cover. It is a great back to school project or the perfect embroidery journal

This project is built in three hoopings. First, hoop mesh cutaway and load the design. The first color stitches the placement line for the cover. Place the cover cork over the outline and stitch it in place. The bird circle body placement stitches are next. Position GlitterFlex over the circle and stitch to tack it down. Trim and fuse as directed.

Continue stitching the bird. Once embroidery is done, remove the hoop from the machine. Turn the hoop over and line up the inside front cover piece with the one in the hoop. Tape it in place (face up), reattach the hoop and stitch outer border tack-down and alignment marks.

When embroidery is finished, remove the hoop, turn it over, and line up pocket piece (face up) with the alignment marks.

Tape it in place. Put the hoop back on the machine and stitch the inner border using matching bobbin thread.

When the front cover is done, remove it from the hoop. Turn it over so the bird is upside down. Line up a ruler 1.25 inches from the edge of the stitching and trim with a rotary cutter.

Trim around the outer border, just inside the outermost border/placement stitch. The back cover is created much the same way.

Attaching Front and Back

Lay front and back covers face up, side by side, matching edges. Tape top and bottom to hold in place.

Match thread and bobbin color to the cork. Put an edge-joining foot on your sewing machine and zig zag the seam together.

Hoop tear-away stabilizer and stitch alignment marks on it. You have two parallel top lines, two parallel bottom lines, and a middle line. Use a ruler to mark an extended center line on the stabilizer.

Place the zig zagged cover over the placement lines so that the cover is centered between top and bottom lines and the seam is right down the center line. Tape in place.

Fold the binding unit in half, long edges together, and snip corners on the fold. That gives a nice midpoint mark. Place the binding, right side up, lining up the notches with the center line. Binding will be longer than your cover so that it can be trimmed to fit later. Tape in place and stitch to attach.

When stitching is done, remove tear-away stabilizer. Trim top and bottom binding even with the notebook and attach snaps. (Jess used 14mm magnetic snaps from Kam Snaps).
