Felt Book Covers
What you'll need...
They are super easy, especially when you use thick felt which doesn't fray and allows for top stitching. As soon as I made the first one of these I was dying to cover the rest of my books. But I haven't had time to sleep this week, so recovering books will have to wait for another day...
What you'll need:
1/2 yard thick felt
2-3 sheets of contrasting felt
Directions & Notes
Step 1: Wrap book with fabric to cover the front and back covers. Trim to allow 1 inch on all sides*
Step 2: Cut two pieces to sit inside the cover of the book. They should each be 1/3 the size of the outside cover.
Step 3: Pin together pieces of the cover laying the inside flaps on top of the cover lining up the corners.
Step 4: Top stitch the pieces together. Trim edges and place book in the cover.
*If you want to "decorate" your book cover, cut out shapes, letters, etc from the contrasting felt and stitch them to the cover in step 1.
