So… I made fabric covered books over the weekend.
I didn’t intend to make fabric covered books. I was trying to make a ticking pillowcase.
See why I don’t like to sew?
A lot of my projects start out as one thing, and end up something else, all because the first project was a failure.
I know… how could I mess up a pillowcase?
My mom informed me that it’s one of the easiest sewing projects in the world.
Truth be told, I actually messed up two of them.
So, let’s just change the subject, shall we? 🙂
To console myself and not waste the ticking, I cut up the messed up pillowcases and decided it would look almost as pretty if I put it on old books.
Plus… I wouldn’t need to touch my sewing machine to make them.
We weren’t on speaking terms with each other.
Old books and I are good friends and no matter what I make with them, they always cooperate. 🙂
I worked on them at night, so I didn’t take a single photo to show you how I did it, but they were easy.
Much easier than pillowcases, and I loved how they turned out.
No, I couldn’t snuggle up in bed with the books, but at least I could have sweet dreams about them, and they helped me not feel like a complete failure
So, the next time I don’t succeed with project, I won’t beat myself up over it…
I’ll just pull out more old books! 🙂

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend, and hope next week gets off to a great start too!
