Back to School — Fabric Book Covers


We adore these fabric book covers created by Jill Dorsey of Made with Moxie. Sure, they’re great for this year’s textbooks, but they’re also fabulous for anyone looking to add a little pizzazz to their day-to-day reads. I know I’d love to craft one of these little beauties to cover up my book-of-the-month. Who wouldn’t?

Jill Dorsey is an arts & crafty woman; a maker. A Jill of All Trades. Bright colors and bold patterns make her heart sing. Her fabric collection is out of control and ever growing. She dreams of her own brick and mortar store. She loves to cook and wants an all year round farmer’s market. She misses living at the beach. She collects skull & crossbones and is a big nerd at heart. She juggles five times more things than her two hands can manage. She has the goal to be superwoman, knows it is unrealistic, and still keeps at it every day.

She lives in Maryland with her husband, Danny, and their children, Jane and Jimmy, who are, hands down, the cutest, most amazing things she have ever seen. They are full of awesome.
