- Place fabric, wrong side up, on work surface; lay opened book on top. Mark around book; add 1/2 inch beyond top and bottom and 3 inches on each side.
- Cut out. Turn under and stitch 1/4-inch hem along top and bottom edges.
- Center opened book horizontally, and mark fold lines for left and right flaps 1/4 inch beyond book covers. Fold flaps over, and sew in place along top and bottom edges in line with hems.
