This will work with any kind of book,you’ll just need to measure it. Open the book flat, measure the width and the height of the open book.Your fabric will need to be twice the length of the open book and two inches taller than the height.
Fold and iron a hem on the long sides that is 1/4″  from the top and bottom of the book.After ironing, lay the book on the folded fabric to check for for fit.

Glue the hems in place

Lay the spine of the book in the middle and open it.  Fold the length of the fabric over both ends to measure the pocket s for the cover to slip into.The pockets will be slightly more than half way across the inside  of the cover.

Fold over a small hem on the ends and glue in place.

To secure the pockets, run a narrow line of glue at the outer edges of the fold.Allow to dry.
