I remember owning a hardcover copy of this book back in the 70s, when we had a small woodstove installed in the cape-style house we owned. Wood stoves were a "new" concept in southwestern CT back then so we had to do a lot of research on our own. I got this copy for twentyfive cents ;) Sunday evening was
I did stand at the book bins for most of my visit, looking for the perfect book to use as a kindle cover. It had to have a catchy title of great graphics, and it had to measure just so. No such luck this trip but I did get one to use for practice. I have watched Youtube videos and read countless online instructions for making cloth cases, but my intentions were to keep the original cover on this one and use some soft leather as the lining.
I've removed the pages and it looks like a good fit. My options for attaching the leather interior and padding seem to be something like Gorilla Glue, and I've got to figure out the way to affix the elastic holders before the leather is glued in place. Kinda like thinking backwards.
I lucked into a handful of these sweet older sewing patterns. They were in a bin of books that was just put out for sale. The guys were busy grabbing books and didn't mind that I was reaching for "old paper stuff". I may hold onto one that really caught my eye, but the rest will be checked for completeness and put into my etsy shop soon.
There was a bit more, but that can wait. I want to get some stitching done tonight. Hope you all had a great Monday!
