Fabric Book Covers – Fun ways to hide what you’re reading

Share the love!

Sometimes you just don’t want to share what the original book is.  I mean who wants to share that you have an obsession with romance novels, chemistry books from your college days (that is the honeys love- don’t tell him I told you about it),  or maybe even classic Archie comic books.

It’s not something you want to blast out to the world.  Or– maybe you a collector or notebooks when the sales hit at school time and you have a nice little pile of composition books.  Those are totally my favorite!

cover your book with fabric

Well- today I’m sharing some fun ways to cover those books….what ever they might be.   These are great for covering your notebooks you write in, books you read,  sketchbooks you might be drawing in.  No matter the shape and size and purpose– fabric book covers are a great way to make them a little bit prettier.
