This is how the book starts out! Muslin approximately 6 1/2" x 12 1/2" for the book covers. The rest of the muslin pieces, are cut 1/2" smaller. Pictured, are two pages, a fabric "double-page" spread, in magazine terms. A square of batting, 1/2 inch smaller than the muslin piece, is stitched to the back of each "muslin page". The pages will be stitched to the inside spine of the book. On the outside of the spine, will attach, a 1930's, rusted filagreed metal plate.
