Wrap Around Book Cover Project


Upcycling project for men's shirts


This book cover project from The Shirt Off His Back by Juliet Bawden and published by Jacqui Small would make a brilliant Christmas or father's day present.  You can cover notebooks, make bespoke photo albums or a removable cover for protecting paperbacks.

Using recycled shirts makes this project is low cost, and to personalise it you could use the recipiant's old shirts to make it (a good idea for dads. grandads, brothers and husbands who are difficult to buy for!).

The first PDF below has the materials and equipment lists, the step by step instructions are in the second pdf.   If you would like to find out more about The Shirt of His back you can read our review here, or purchase it here.
