Step-by-Step Guide to Embroidering a Cover for a Stamp Album

Step One: Tip for those who don't have the exact colors and need to select something suitable from what they have at hand: increase the size of the color chart multifold and print it out. This makes it a lot easier to pick the needed colors. You can use threads produced by different companies, as long as they are of the same thickness.
Step Two: After embroidering each color, remove jump stitches.
Step Three: The embroidery is finished.
Step Four: Here's the stamp album that we want to decorate.
Step Five: Remove the embroidery from its hoop and gently iron it.
Step Six: Mark a rectangle around the embroidery, corresponding to the size of the album. Fold back the margins that are left around the marking and iron the embroidery again.
Step Seven: We leave a border of around 1 1/2" - 2" (4-5 cm) and mark it down again, as shown on the picture.
Step Eight: Cut along the marking from the previous step.
Step Nine: Brush the flap that's going to lie along the album's spine with glue and fold it back.
Step Ten: Brush both the cover of the album and back-side of the embroidery with glue and place them carefully together.
Step Eleven: Open the album and glue down the flaps created in Step Eight.
Steps Twelve and Thirteen: Use white adhesive tape to cover the fabric.

Step Fourteen: Finished! You can follow the same steps to create a cover for a photo album, a diary, or a book.
