No Sew Elastic Book Band
Using scrap denim to make practical and adorable elastic book bands.
- Scrap denim
- Fabric scissors
- Printable Shapes Pattern
- ¼” wide Elastic
- Hot glue gun and clear glue sticks
Print off the pattern on a 8.5x11 sheet of paper.
Working one book band shape at a time, cut around each of the individual pattern pieces.
Place the pattern over the denim and cut the pieces out along the solid line.
Cut a piece of elastic 9” long for a smaller bookband or at 18” for a bigger elastic bookand.
Assembling the Elastic Book Band
Glue the ends of the elastic on to the top side of one larger cut out shape, avoid twisting the elastic. Once glued, it will form a large loop.
Stack the remaining pieces so that the smallest piece is on the top rotating the direction for each layer and sandwich the elastic in between.
Use the hot glue gun to glue the layers together in the center.
Wrap the elastic around a book to hold your place.
