Tiny Composition Cover
- Tear-Away or Cut-Away Stabilizer- I use tear-away so I can tear up to the edges and not have too much bulk when I turn design. IRON ALL PIECES WITH TERIAL MAGIC FABIC STABILIZER (No steam) to make fabric firmer.
- 1 piece of 10 x 7 fabric for base – Iron one piece of Pellon SF 101 to back (9 1⁄2 x 6 1⁄2)
- 2 pieces of 10 x 7 fabric – fold in half to 10 x 3 1⁄2 - side pockets
- 1 piece of fabric 5 x 7 for inside back piece
- PEN POCKET: 2 pieces of fabric 4 x 9 - fold one in half to 4 x 4 1⁄2 and Iron one piece of
- Pellon SF 101 (4 x 3) at the top of the fold – make 3 the length. This allows the material to be firm on the fold for the pen placement. Do not make the SF 101 any longer or it will be in the fold when you turn.
- Accent strip - cut 1 piece of fabric 1 x 9
- IRON ALL FABRIC WITH TERIAL MAGIC FABRIC STABILIZER (this is to make the fabric strong – otherwise insert cut-away stabilizer in the middle of the folds)
