Still Experimenting With Book Covers

Second attempt, using the first piece that I cut out last week.  This time I decided to make a pouch rather than a cover that open and shuts with the book.  I can just about squeeze a prayer book inside it.

When the book is inside the binding at the sides sticks out at right angles.  Perhaps I should use it for a slightly smaller book.

The flap only just overlaps, so I won't be able to fasten it with a button and buttonhole.  Loops for buttons are a possibility, or perhaps a clasp.  I am still deliberating and rummaging through my tins of bits and pieces for ideas.  For the time being a bit of cord will do the trick.

I have yet to sort something out for the book I originally wanted to cover.  Let's hope it's third time lucky!

Free Motion Mavericks this week is at Andrée's blog 
Quilting and Learning and I'm linking up!


  1. Use a hair bungee (like a covered rubber band) to hold a button. Super easy and easy to use. The hair bungee's come in colors, too.

  2. Hi Muv, that's a good idea. I think that I need something like that for my phone. I can never find it in my purse because it just slides down to the bottom...somewhere! Good luck with number three! :-)
