we’ve always loved these classic gingham tablecloths, and on a recent visit to the dollar store we were excited to find them in a fun assortment of colors (in addition to the standard red). because they are water resistant and so easy to work with, we thought they would make nice protective covers for a few of our favorite cookbooks, which over the years have endured more than their fair share of sauce splatters and flour dustings.

here’s what you’ll need:
1. the technique is the same as it was in school. lay your book open on top of a length of tablecloth. cut a length of tablecloth with a 2” border around the entire book.
2. fold the top and bottom pieces under so they are flush with the cover, then fold the side pieces over the outside edges and secure them with a little piece of tape.
