Some of my cookbooks are beginning to look a little grubby. Years ago, I always covered cookbooks with stick on transparent Fablon [sticky-back-plastic as they called it on Blue Peter] but I stopped doing that in about 1995.
Three of my later acquisitions, the ones I am currently using a lot, needed some sort of protection. Floss mentioned covering hers in oilcloth – so I took the books…
and covered them with some pretty cloth from The Range
There’s only one problem…
Which one is which?
They’re all the same size, so I need to make some sort of identifying labels for the spines.
But at least they are wipe clean now.
I had half a metre of this plastic coated fabric, and it cost less than 35p per book to make the covers. Like Floss, I really enjoyed this speedy little DIY project, and they do look so pretty on the shelf.
The Range has a great…errr…range…of fabrics like this. There is one fabric with a pattern of pebbles – maybe I should cover the two cookbooks which live at Cornerstones with that design?
