Pattern Description:

If you enjoy sewing and love books why not try making your own Lilly*Blossom Book Cover in your favourite fabric using my easy to follow, 12 page, fully illustrated PDF sewing pattern.

Lilly*Blossom Book covers are ideal for catching a few chapters on the way to work, relaxing on holiday on the beach or as a gift to someone special. Perfect when given with a book of your choice to any book lover. The sewing guide shows you how to make one with or without handles attached.

This finished book cover will cover an average 350 page paperback which measures approximately 5" wide by 81/2" high by 1-2" deep.

Between the layers of fabric there is a soft wadding which will protect your book. Attach your own unique beaded bookmark so you will never lose your place. Simply insert the front and back covers of your favourite paperback into the finished book cover and just open it to read! What could be easier.

The PDF shows how to make you own paper pattern using very simple rectangular shapes, how to cut out the fabric and step-by-step instructions with diagrams to help you complete your project.

The sewing guide is suitable for anyone who has experience of using basic sewing machine stitches & following sewing patterns.
