Before the Workshop
Please make a paper pattern using the following dimensions:-
A rectangle of 22 cms x 14.8 cms (angles should be 90 degrees), on either copy paper or tracing paper, and mark off the middle at 11cm. This will make it easier for you to place the embroidery design.
If you have an idea for a design - feel free to draw it on the paper pattern, remembering that the front of the note book will be on the right hand side of the pattern.
Decoration on the cover can be in any form eg. applique, embroidered design, free form embroidery etc, using any threads or fabric in your stash.
