Had to finish this little soft book for my nephew since we’ll be seeing him tomorrow and he always gets a book from his Auntie.
One little thing I’ve discovered with doing a couple of these … you really need to trim back the batting (very thin batting) in the area you’ve left open to turn the pages inside out. Here’s a detail picture …
What you’re seeing are the two layers of book pages (right sides together) and a layer of very thin batting (I use a poly) on top. With my walking foot, I’ve stitched around the four sides – leaving an opening about 4” to turn this right sides out. I notch out the batting in this area to make it a little easier to stitch this section together when turned out.
*Note: When stitching around the four sides I have the fabric facing up so that I can see where I’m stitching. I leave the poly batting larger by about an inch on each side. When done, I can trim it down. I also cut off the corners c-a-r-e-f-u-l-l-y to get rid of bulk at the corners when I try to make the points nice and crisp!
