silky book cover.
things you need:
1. a book
2. iron
3. cookie cutter (same shape but two different sizes)
4. pen
5. scissor
6. glue
7*. (two colors of silk) or any other cloth  material in two colors.

silk is a beautiful as it is shiny.. but it ruins quite quickly.


okay.. so first of all let me give you the briefing. 
i used 12 pieces of small cookie cutter shape. and 3 large cookie cutter shapes.

Step 2: Step 1 take the book

First measure the length and width of your book and take out the 'area 1'. Second, measure the length of your cookie cutter and take out the 'area2'.

divide area 1 by area 2.. ( via this you will get that now many pieces you need to cover your book.)

once you get how many pieces are required, start drawing in on your cloth

 cut and set aside.

* i used 12 pieces.

Step 3: Step 2 small shapes and arrangement
