Making a Felt Book Cover

- Aug 16, 2017-

1. Use a colorful piece of felt to make a book cover. Felt is a strong and durable fabric to use for a book cover. It’s a good cover style for kids’ books or for notebooks that are toted around a lot in a bag.

  • If you can, use wool felt in preference to synthetic felt mixes, as it’s a lot easier to work with. However, wool felt tends to be more expensive too.

2. Use a piece of felt large enough for the book. An average dimension (paperback, notebook) is typically 8.5” x 12”/21.5cm x 30.5cm. Although you may need your felt to be larger depending on the size or your books.

  • The sides of the felt need to be adequately large so as to fold over the edges of the book to create flaps.
