My son has to cover his books for school. Instead of buying them this year, I decided to use my scrap fabric and make them myself. I measured the book and added 1 inch for the top and bottom seams to allow room for the flaps. I used interfacing to add strength to the fabric since it will be used daily. I serged all of the edges. Then I folded the ends of the fabric with the wrong sides together to create the flaps. I liked the serged edge so I wanted it to show. I top stitcthed (twice) close the edge of the flaps on the right side of the fabric. The cover fits snug and has enough give to open and close the book.
Fabric, thread, tape measure, fusible interfacing, book you are going to cover.
