How to make a Sample Book

Creating a sample book

Macintosh Visual Graphic's now produces books for fabric samples. Prospective sewers will use fabric sample books to select fabrics for new projects and select different patterns and fabric styles for future items. Here is the method I developed to produce the Take it Further Fiber Book and the two volumes of Take a Stitch Tuesday stitch sa. Reference books are very individual ways of presenting material samples. When you can conjure a sample to take home with you, you can win the day - and the order.

Creating a fabric sample book

Pattern book is regularly used by design and stitching fans. This book shows different patterns of cloth and is small enough to carry in a handbag or brief case. Indoor decorators and clothing design professionals can use the pattern book to find the right cloth for a room or outfit.

Prospective sewers will use pattern booklets to select materials for new design and select different samples and style for upcoming articles. Customize your own pattern book using either bought materials or your own design. Place your cloth on a level area. Use your scale or straightedge to take 3 inch x 5 inch measurements on a single sheet of cloth.

Use scissors to trim out the straight cloth square. Use your scissors to trim the rest of the cloth into 3 -inch and 5-inch squares. Calculate the number of cloth squares you have. Slice 3 -inch and 5-inch squares from the map supply, also with your serrated scissors. They require an identical number of map and substance squares.

Reverse the cloth squares so that the good side of the cloth faces down on a level area. Use an adhesive pencil or compound to apply adhesive to one side of a rectangular area. Ensure that the adhesive or compound is evenly distributed over the map material. Lay the sticky side of the deck squares on the back of a cloth squares.

Press lightly on the back of the deck and put it aside. Proceed to fix the rest of the map squares to the cloth squares. Let the specimens thoroughly cure. Punching a perforation in the top lefthand of each sample, 1/2 inches from the edges, with a puncher.

Every perforation should be placed at the same place on each sample. Suture each sample onto the book ring made of sheet steel. As soon as all specimens are on the ring, shut the ring. If desired, place adhesive addresses on the back of the sample. Either the name and cost of the cloth can be written on the sticker with a stylus or the information can be printed on the sticker using an Inksprinter.

When you want to have the information printed, do so before you place the labels on the pattern. You should also involve the substance producer so that you know how to find the substance if you want to use it. When you buy cloth for your sample book, ask for leftovers or items at the end of the reel.

They are usually small items that do not fit but perfectly for a sample book and you should be able to buy them at a rebate. Enter your name and your contacts in the sample book if you want to lend it to others. Putting the map material on the back of the sheet makes it more powerful what is needed for the sample book.
