Final CoverI’ve just finished a  tutorial with everything you need to know to make a piece of flat felt and turn it into a book-cover with a flap closure and delrin clip. It took forever because I started toying with the idea of doing workshops and started working on updating and expanding my Wet Felting tutorial, and I also wanted to do the tutorial for making the book cover, and in the end I decided to combine them.
I thought I’d never finish, but I finally got it uploaded to the hosting site yesterday (hopefully, I did it right!) so I’m giving away a copy. It’s a 59 page PDF and has lots of different sections and loads of photos right through the whole process of planning, making a sample, laying out the wool and fibres, wet felting, cutting out the pieces, and sewing it together. For more details you can read the full blurb on my blog.

Compilation 2You don’t need to do anything special to enter, just leave a comment on this post. If you’d like to spread the word through your blog or facebook etc, it would be very much appreciated but it isn’t a requirement. I will randomly draw the winner 6 days from now, on Thursday 27th February 2014, so please check back on the 27th to see if you’ve won, and leave a comment on the announcement post so I can contact you with the download information.

comp picAlso … together with the tutorial, I am giving away a custom ‘Project Pack’: enough wool, fabrics and embellishment fibres to make a sample and piece of felt big enough to make a cover for an A5 notebook ( they’re about 21 x 15cm or 8 x 6″), a delrin clip and embroidery thread. I’ll make up the wool batts to your specifications, whichever colour theme you want, which embellishment fibres to blend in, some texturey wools if you like, etc.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAI’ll even do you a pink theme if you like 😉

  1. Love it! The preview pics look so helpful. I did go to your blog link to check on buying it but didn’t see pricing. But it is still early in the morning so perhaps I’m missing something 😉

  2. Dear Zed
    Please enter me for your giveaway. I make felt but am always on the lookout for different and exciting projects to try.
    Best wishes and happy felting!

  3. I’d love to enter your giveaway, Zed. I’ll share this on my FB page as well (although I should be selfish and keep the information all to myself to better my chances, haha!)

    Have a great day!

  4. I would love to have the chance to win this fantastic giveaway. I love wet felting and this would be a fantastic first project. 🙂

    1. Thanks, Marilyn 🙂
      I probably will put the project kits on etsy, I’m trying to work out if I can do a combined download/kit listing.

  6. Looks like a great tutorial book. ai love your posts and your willingness to share so much that you do. 🙂

  7. Hi Zed, what an amazing give-away! I can vouch for how thorough and informative your beyond nuno book is so am looking forward to reading through this one too :o)

  8. I have taken a few felting classes. I love it! I love the texture, the colors, and the quick gratification. I have made beads, pictures, and animals. Would love to make that pink journal. Thanks for chance to win! Thanks for the inspiration.

  9. Zed, Your notebook cover is beautiful, and I have been admiring it for awhile. Thanks for your continuing inspiration!

  10. I’ve only been felting a year and I would like to learn more. I really like this book cover.

    PS I so love your felted vessels!

  11. Looks like a fun and clear tutorial. Plus that pink would be very pretty for my girlie BFF’s gratitude journal!

  12. Thanks again everyone for the really nice comments 🙂
    There’s still two days to go for anyone who wants to enter.

    Just to be clear, the giveaway is for the PDF tutorial, and a Project pack with everything to make a book cover. I will make it up for you after the draw, in any colour or colour combo you like, it doesn’t have to be pink, but it can be 🙂

  13. Well this is irresistible Zed. I have been meaning to ask you for clear instructions as to how you do your covers for ages. You do such so good job of production.

We'd love to hear your thoughts!
