Making books from felt is a painstaking and prolonged course of. For every web page, you’ll need to decide on a fantastic template and print it out. Then all of the figures from the template should be minimize out or transferred to tracing paper, then positioned on the felt and repeat reducing out the main points from the felt. Prepared-made felt collectible figurines then have to be positioned on felt pages and sewn fantastically. Such pages for the alphabet would require 35 items – 33 for letters and two for the duvet.

STEP BY STEP DESCRIPTION WITH PHOTO
As you may see, there may be a number of work to be executed. So, let’s get began shortly, as a result of, little doubt, you wish to see as quickly as doable what new feelings a vivid selfmade felt alphabet will trigger in your child!
STEP 1: MAKE THE PAGES
Reduce the sheets of felt into equivalent squares, for instance, 10×10 cm or 15×15 cm. Since our e-book is meant for kids, it’s optimum that every web page has a distinct shade.
Subsequent, you should beautify all of the pages.
STEP 2: DECORATE THE PAGES
We provide two choices for adorning the pages of the alphabet. One is for younger women, the opposite is for little males.
OPTION FOR GIRLS
To design the pages of the ABCs for Women, use the drawings offered under.
OPTION FOR BOYS
The next are the drawings of the ABCs for Boys. Use them for web page design.
So far, there are numerous variants of the digital ABC with a fantastic design of letters. If you don’t like our templates, otherwise you need the Russian alphabet, you should utilize any coloring letters as a sample for the alphabet from felt.
STEP 3: DESIGN THE PAGES
After your pages with letters are utterly prepared, they have to be fantastically designed right into a e-book. To do that, you may sew all of the letters alphabetically collectively utilizing a stitching machine or a hand overlock sew. To do that, fold, for instance, sheets with the letters “A” and “B” collectively “again to again”, and stitch them to one another across the perimeter. On this case, when stitching, attempt to choose the threads of the specified shade.
Alternatively, connect a sq. piece of black felt of the identical dimension to the unsuitable aspect of every web page and stitch them along with black thread.
Since our booklet has a number of pages, the best choice can be to stitch all of the sheets again to again. On this case, it is not going to come out as thick as within the model with sheathing with black felt.
STEP 4: TRIM THE EDGES
After all of your pages are stitched, you should trim their edges. To do that, fastidiously and evenly minimize all of the sheets across the perimeter with scissors.
If you understand how to stitch and minimize completely, you may skip this step. We didn’t succeed, and we minimize off all of the uneven sides.
STEP 5: MAKE HOLES (METHOD #1)
Draw symbols for the holes on a bit of paper. Following these notations, use a gap punch to make holes on the pages.
STEP 6: INSERT THE RINGS (METHOD #1)
As soon as your whole holes have been drilled, use your pliers to insert the connector rings into them. We used rings with a diameter of 4 cm.
STEP 7: MAKE HOLES (METHOD #2)
To assemble the e-book utilizing the second methodology, make holes on all pages besides the primary and final (for the duvet).
As well as, take an extra two items of felt. The size of those items needs to be equal to the size of your pages, and the width needs to be the overall thickness of all folded pages + 1 cm for a niche. These items are wanted to kind the “spine” of your e-book.
STEP 8: ASSEMBLE THE BOOK (METHOD #2)
Reduce two items of satin ribbon every 2 meters lengthy.
Conditionally divide the 2 extra items of felt into 3 components. Utilizing cloth glue, glue each items of ribbon onto one of many further felt items, inserting them between the second and third items. Glue one other piece of felt on high of the primary piece. Await the glue to dry.
Trim the highest of the felt on the piece of backbone in order that it’s barely smaller than the underside. This can assist with the stitching within the subsequent step.
To connect the backbone to the back and front covers, sew the primary and final pages to the center utilizing a hand overlock sew. When executed with stitching, add some glue between the two items of backbone in order that our felt alphabet can resist sturdy youngsters’s arms.
Subsequent, insert the tape on either side into the holes and cross it via all of the pages. To complete, merely pull the ribbons in the direction of you and tie them into lovely bows.
The alphabet from felt, created with your personal arms from starting to finish, is prepared! We hope you loved our patterns, which now we have given you the chance to obtain totally free. We want you good luck!
