Old Fashioned Paperback Book Cover

Old Fashioned Paperback Book Cover
Old Fashioned Paperback Book Cover

"Before eBooks and Audiobooks there were Paperback books ;) I’m sure they still exist and for those of you who love your paperback books and still borrow them from the library, or purchase them in bookstores this pattern is for you! My Nana always had a fabric book cover on her paperback books and I have planned on making a crochet version for myself for quite some time. This is a very easy pattern - you can choose to try to apply a yarn pooling technique, or use a solid color yarn instead. I have included multiple photos and visuals to assist you with the project and video tutorial links for the best planned pooling videos I’ve seen so far. This will make a great gift for anyone who likes to take their book with them to appointments - it allows them to read what they want without anyone else around them knowing if it is the latest trashy romance novel - or vampire series!"

What a great idea. I want it for my cook books. If I use cotton yarn, I can toss it into the washer. Put an end to my messy cook book covers. It's such an easy pattern, I just can't resist.na little embroidery on the front will enable me to add a title.

I love this book cover pattern. It isn't complicated, and it appears to be easily adjustable for different sized books.

I loved the story of the authors grandmother hiding her Bodice Ripper novels in plain fabric wrappers! It gives me an idea about how to make one up for my sons Game of Thrones paperbacks. These would also make nice covers for inexpensive Bibles, too. If you want to get a little daring with your cover, the author has also provided a video tutorial on color pooling, too.
