Fabric-covered books

Get some of that gorgeous fabric out of your stash and out on display. This is a fun way to turn those college textbooks that you just can't toss into pretty risers for collectibles.

Remember when you used to cover your schoolbooks with grocery bags? Use that same technique with fabric - just trim and fold it to fit around your book. You can tuck the book covers into the fabric flaps, or just fold them inside. Super cute way to brighten up a bookshelf!

  2. Lovely. I have the same green fabric with the gold/brown leaves. Great idea and love your color choices.

    1. Thanks - I got that from a dealer who specializes in African textiles.
