Waterproof Book Covers

Here’s another fabulous idea that Martha has created.  I thought this would be perfect, especially since lots of you out there will be going to the beach.

Protect your summer reading at the beach or pool with these stylish covers. Use oilcloth or vinyl to repel water and lotion.

What You’ll Need to do:

1.    Place fabric, wrong side up, on work surface; lay opened book on top.

2.   Mark around book; add 1/2 inch beyond top and bottom and 3 inches on each side. Cut out.

3.   Turn under and stitch 1/4-inch hem along top and bottom edges.

4.   Center opened book horizontally, and mark fold lines for left and right flaps 1/4 inch beyond book covers.

5.   Fold flaps over, and sew in place along top and bottom edges in line with hems.


About Dino
There are many things that I love to do. One of those things is crafts! If I could find a job that involved crafts and being able to pay the bills, I'd be all over it! I've also found a great love for cooking and baking in the past few years. Sometimes there doesn't seem to be enough time in the day to be able to fully get into cooking and baking to the degree that I would like to. I've also found myself making a HUGE effort to save my family money. I'm still a beginner but I'm surprised at how many different ways I've found to save money, including starting to use coupons! I hope you enjoy all that I'm about to share.
