Lately I've been trying to cook more, so that means looking at my recipe book more. Only, my recipe book is a nasty photo album from the dollar store - not very attractive. So, I decided to dress it up. One of my favorite parts of going back to school was covering textbooks in paper bags. I used the same pattern, only with fabric!
Book you want to cover
1 Fat quarter
Hand sewing needle and thread
Felt, tacky spray, and embroidery thread (optional)
Step 1: Take your fat quarter, iron it, and give it a nice clean 1/4" hem all the way around. (I fold mine under twice so it looks cleaner.)
