Felt Book Cover

Warm hands are guaranteed when reading your favorite book this fall. The felt cover in the warm autumn color is quick and easy to sew and the cute animal motifs give it a charming touch and add to the autumn look.



Felt Book Cover

For this project you will need:

- felt (not so dark autumn colors so that the napkin motifs will still show up well when ironed on)
- paper napkin with fall animals or other fall motifs
- fusible web
- parchment paper (to protect iron from adhesive on fusible web when ironing)
- sewing machine and matching thread
- sharp scissors
- iron and ironing board


1. Measure your book when opened (2 x book front plus width of the book spine) and cut felt to this width plus 1 centimeter seam allowance. Cut the height of the felt piece to the same height of the book plus 1 cm seam allowance.
2. Cut two felt pieces 8 centimeters wide pieces x book height plus 1 cm seam allowance.

4. Cut a quarter of your napkin off and separate the top layer from the bottom layers. Cut a piece of fusible web to the size of the cut napkin. Now place the fusible web square with the glue side up on the ironing board. Place the napkin square over the web with the pretty side up. Place the parchment paper now on both layers and iron without steam until the napkin adheres to the fusible web.
