Book Cushion and Book Sleeve Sewing Projects

Book cushions used in Marsh’s for early printed books and manuscripts

Book cushions are ideal for use with our delicate books.

This triangular pyramid pattern wouldn’t be one we would use at Marsh’s, but is ideal to use with modern books, kindles and mobile phones at home.  It is very simple to make, you can cut up an old cushion cover if you haven’t any fabric at hand and it is even possible without a sewing machine!
