How to Make Book Covers & Other Home Library Accessories : How to Iron a Homemade Book Cover
Hi! I’m Karen for Expert Village. Next, we
want to fold in the edges like this. With a hot iron press to mark where we’re folding.
That’s our 4 inches. We’ll press to mark. Then pushing the spine down because we want
the full size of the book cover, we’ll fold it over and close the book. We want this book
cover to be fairly snug. When it’s a good fit, you want to just open the book like this
and press again to mark where you want to fold that. You’ll press that. Now, that is
going to fit the book perfectly. Remove your book and set it aside. Okay, now you have
your markings and we want to press where you marked it. Press the whole cover so that you
don’t have any other markings. Then you should fold the book cover in half and press that
center seam. Next, I’ll show you how to mark it for sewing.
