Here, dear reader, is part 2 of yesterday's frankie/A5 diary cover tutorial. Part 1 can be found here.
When we left off yesterday, we'd just measured and cut the fabric panels, and zigzag stitched around the edge of each panel to prevent the fabric from fraying.
Step 8: I then sewed the hems down at the top and bottom. Only one more step to go!
Step 9: Lastly, I reversed the cover, and folded the two edge panels over, about 7 or so centimetres, enough to create the flap to hold in the diary. I then sewed along the top of the flap, keeping very close to the outer edge of the fabric, again, so the cover would fit the diary very snugly. I then turned out these flaps and slipped the cover on the diary and...voila!
