DIY Textbook and Notebook Covers

DIY Textbook and Notebook Covers
DIY Textbook and Notebook Covers

"Here in Portugal, school usually only starts in September, so for every kid and parent in this country, the school supplies madness is about to start. I totally understand why, I still love browsing the supplies section at the store, there's something about that brand new book smell and colorful notebook covers that grabs my attention every time. This project actually happened as a request from my younger sister, she will be reusing some books this year and they were not very cared for previously, so she asked me if there was a way to make them pretty again. I instantly thought about some kind of cover and we ended up deciding on making them waterproof with tablecloth vinyl, it's washable and strong enough to protect the books while still being able to sew through it."

When I taught school, I took it upon myself to cover books in the classroom that were communal like the music books. These books were left in the classroom and distributed when needed. By covering them, they were a little less worn at the end of the year. I found it therapeutic and after a few classes I would see some of my students come in with wrapped books.

When I was in elementary school it was a requirement to cover our textbooks. Back then, it was just a plain brown paper bag but I really had fun drawing designs to make my cover unique to me. When my children stared school there were those stretch covers. They were more practical but it just was not the same.

This beyond easy and so cute. I have a stack of binders that I have used to keep recipes sorted into. But the covers are really very messed up. Stained, torn and the like. This would solve so many problems. It would update their appearance and they would be stain resistant.
