My friend Heather and I have been friends since we were 3 years old and were born just 4 days apart from each other. This year I made her a fabric book cover for her birthday using Mai’s tutorial. I also embroidered her initials on the front and used one of our favorite fabrics, Echino Bird to Hang linen by Etsuko Furuya. Love!! The only change I made to the pattern was to use a piece of elastic in the back since I didn’t have any cotton tape on hand. I gave it a little tension so it would hold tight to the book cover.
It turned out really well! The only issue I have with it is that when you make something like this you have to have a certain book in mind. Book sizes vary so much that you’re basically making one cover to fit just one book. I cut out the pattern according to Mai’s measurements, but if I make it again I’ll cut it quite a bit bigger. Although, I did manage to find a good book to slip into it to give to Heather :)
