I love sewing these fabric book covers. They can make a boring looking book or folder more colourful and attractive in no time. This easy sewing project would also make a great back to school project!

You can download the project PDF with the complete list of materials and tools needed, as well as step by step instructions. Click on the blue button below.



And of course, I’ve created a full video tutorial to make it as easy as possible for you to understand the instructions. The video is the next best thing to me standing next to you and showing you in person.
