    I will try again to put up the pictures. Please bare with me. Please note***** when you do the hand sewing only hand sew the quilt sandwich. Do not sew through the folds or that will prevent your book from going in the correct way. I will definitely add more embellishment to this cover. Any questions, I will try to help you. Please PM. :lol: :shock:
