I'm making a fabric children's book for my GCSE textiles coursework (for those not in the UK, GCSE's are exams that you have to take when you're 16!) and am stuck on how exactly to fix it together!

If you can imagine this, it has 6 19x19cm square cotton pieces, and I want to fix two together at once, therefore making three pages. I'm not sure how exactly to fix all the pages together, so if anyone has any ideas, I'd be more then appreciative!

Thanks very much in advance!

i would sew the six-two pieces to make the three pages and then eyelet and lace them together into a book, either with or without a cover...
(sorry--premature post)
you could also sew them into a long line and roll them up like a scroll, if you wanted, or make a little pouch or pocket for them...

not sure what age your book is for but if you just stitched it you could put padding in the middle so it was a soft book. I did that for a GCSE textile project but my book was aimed at toddlers if its for older children it might not be suitable!! Good luck with your GCSE's by the way!!!!!! Grin

Thank-you for the replies  Grin I think I'll stuff it with cotton wool to make it softer for the wee kiddies! Thanks once again you two  Kiss
