PATTERN DETAILS

You know those neat stretchy book covers you see with all the "back to school" supplies? And, they are between $3 and $5 a piece? Well, as a former dance mom who had a ton of dance and swimwear fabric from when my daughter was a dancer, I decided I could make those much cheaper. This tutorial is super easy. And...it's super, super easy if you have a serger. With 1 yd of two-way stretch fabric (depending on width) can net you between 3 and 6 book covers. This two-way stretch fabric is the spandex/lycra you find in the swimwear fabric or dance fabric. If you use one of those ever popular 50% off a cut of fabric coupon at everyone's favorite fabric store, you can save quit a bit by making these book covers yourself.

I have three children that range in age from 3 to 13 years old and an amazing husband that tolerates all of our craziness. I love to craft. I love to sew. I love to create new recipes to share (especially cupcakes!). And, I love to design and create tutorials. One day when I finally grow up, I dream of being a novelist.
