Colorful Fabric Book Cover

Save your old bandanas and create a Colorful Fabric Book Cover from Heidi Borchers. This craft is practical, fun and eco-friendly. Use bright colored fabric with easily distinguishable prints - it will help books stand out so your child will never misplace their textbooks.

Colorful Fabric Book Cover


  • Bandanas (colors and patterns of your choice)
  • Book of your choice
  • Aleene’s Fabric Fusion Peel & Stick Tape
  • Scissors
  • Pencil


  1. Lay book on bandana leaving approximately 3″ at top. Measure and cut to 3″ at bottom.
