I love toting books around with me, but I don’t love how the covers get damaged in the process. The switch to digital books mostly solved this problem, but I still prefer paper to a screen. I used to have a nice travel cover, complete with a light, but that is long since lost. It didn’t fit most of my books, anyway (I like 'em big, lol).
I was browsing Pinterest and came across this design for an adjustable cover. What a fantastic idea! I did assemble it in a slightly different way, but the outcome was pretty much the same.
The fabrics, I found at a local shop (actually went to two different locations to get what I wanted…still couldn’t find this fantastic cats&books print that I saw on their website, but you can’t win 'em all, and it’s available online if I decide I really need it). Still, book covers that look like stacks and shelves of books and open up to pages from various novels and fairy tales…
I made one for myself and one for my Winter Book Swap partner.
