Here are questions related to Making a Quilted Photo Album Cover.
I just love this site. So many great people out there that are willing to help us dummies that don't know or forget how to do things. Anyway, I was wondering if their is anyone that can tell me how to cover a photo album. The kind that is padded with quilting and fabric and can be trimmed with lace. You then can put a picture of someone on the front. It's like something you would do for a special wedding album but this one is for everyday use. Hopefully someone will know what I'm talking about. For one thing, what kind of glue do you use? God Bless each and everyone of you.

I need a pattern and directions for making a padded photo album. Thanks.
Here's a great video showing the basics of making a covered photo album.
For a wedding album the ideas for fabric and trims are limitless - let your imagination and the bride's wedding colors, style, etc. be your guide!
I prefer skipping the lace around the outer edge and using decorations only on the front but it's up to you. This video demonstrates how to cover a "regular" photo album but if you can afford the type album, with screws, where you can removed the front and back covers to work separately they are the easiest. Acid free album sheets are the best and worth the price for a lifetime of memories.
