Making a fabric book cover is super easy. I’m making one for a textbook, but you can use in on any hardcover book, journal, or binder.
This is a great back to school project to beautify and protect all your books and binders. You could also use it to add color and pattern to books on a shelf or coffee table.

With the book closed, measure from the edge of the back cover around to the edge of the front. That’s 19” for this book. Also measure the height, which is 11” here.
Lay the book out flat on the right side of the fabric and center it. There should be about 4” or a little less on the sides.
Fold the fabric in over the ends of the cover and pin on the top and bottom. Make sure it fits when closed.
