|Step 1:: First find a [copyright free] image you love. |
*TIP* It will print as a mirror image, so if there are words or directional images make sure to adjust it in Photoshop. (Go to Image - Image Rotation - Flip Canvas)
|Step 2: Print your image on iron on transfer paper|
|Step 3:: Use a hot iron to press your image into your fabric according to the directions. You can use an iron, we just happen to have a heat press|
|Step 4:: Peel the paper backing off your transfer.|
|Step 5:: Cut down your printed fabric to 2 pieces.|
The front should be 10" x 11"
The back should be 14" x 11"
*OR* whatever size makes sense for your sketchbook, ipad, etc...
|Step 6:: Sew your zipper to the front piece.|
Don't stress out about zippers, take a deep breath and follow the instructions inside the package.
|Step 7:: Sew the other side of the zipper to your back piece.|
|Step 8:: Now is a good time to embellish!|
|Step 9:: Press a fold into the back piece so it folds over the the front. The bottom edges of your 2 pieces should line up.|
|Step 10:: Stitch the side seams and bottom seam.|
