Book Slipcovers

Looking for that perfect gift for book lovers? These book slipcovers are so easy and fun to make. I gave these two to my mother for Mother's Day. She loved them and is asking for some more for her friends. I made two different sizes. One for smaller paperbacks and one for larger paperbacks.

You can make them reversible too! The one on top is not reversible because I added the flower embellishment. But if you want to leave off the embellishments, you can make it reversible.

This one is reversible.

This is the inside of the slipcover, but it can be reversed to make it the outside.

This is a great way to use up some scrapes and protect your books from all the fun stuff that comes with summer - i.e. pool water, suntan lotion, popsicles, etc.

I hope you enjoy some summer reading in style!
