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.

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.
