Quiet Book Cover Page- Free Embroidery File

This book cover is cut 12x12 inches, then sewn with a 1/4 inch seam, leaving a small opening to turn inside out, then top stitched around the edge approximately 1/4 inch from edge.
Look for the FREE machine embroidery file below.









In the top left corner I wanted a hole for binder ring, so that pages could be added as they were made.  Also, if children are sharing the book, pages can be taken out for each child.
   I didn't care for the circle in the available decorative stitches.  It never turned out as a circle.  So, I used my button hole attachment set at the smallest possible length (without the use of a button in the spacer).  I chose the keyhole style button hole. As you can see from the picture above, it turned out almost a circle.  The one below was too long. 
    I believe most Brother/Babylock machines now come with this puncher device that helps to punch the hole.  I haven't figured out the purpose of the side holes on this device?
      These binder rings can be purchased in various sizes from an office supply store.  I had these left over from teaching.
     You can download my
to embroider this book cover.  (no by name is included).  The apple embroidery I believe was downloaded from www.sewforum.com but I cannot find the location and give credit to the person that posted the apple.  It originally had a leaf and some shading marks.  If you claim this embroidery design, please let me know so I can give credit where it is due.
