BUILDING THE PAGE:

Surface whip-stitch all the pieces into place.
You only catch the surface top stitches so that you stitches do NOT go thru to the other side of the page.

WATCH THIS VIDEO TO SEE HOW I DO IT!

  • STEP ONE: Building the Castle
    * Attach the Main piece int the center first – I did not sew the ‘towers’- I left them so they can be ‘flapped’ – with the Main piece you ONLY sew 3 sides – the left and right and bottom.
    (the main piece of the castle is like a ‘pocket’)
    * Position the Roofs – attach;
    * Fit the Small pieces slightly over the roof and attach (again not sewing the towers);
    * Fit the Medium pieces over the Small pieces and attach (again not sewing the towers)

  • STEP TWO: Attach/sew/glue small flower buttons or crochet flowers onto the climbing ivy.
  • STEP THREE: Building the Drawbridge
    * Sew only the bottom edge just beneath the bottom of the Main Castle piece;
    * Then cut approx 30/40 cm piece of decorative rope/ OR ribbon/ OR crochet a chain;
    * Then ‘tie’ on end to the left top of the drawbridge (the knot should be on the ‘outside’); then weave it thru just beneath the outer ‘tower – making sure you can see the rope if you ‘flap’ down the towers; then weave thru the opposite tower; then knot on the end of the right top of the drawbridge.
    You should be able to ‘close’ the drawbridge by being able to pull the rope that is ‘hidden’ behind the towers.
    When the drawbridge is closed the ‘pull rope’ is hidden in the ‘pocket’
  • STEP FOUR: Attach Buttons to ‘hide’ the knots of the rope.
