I have a quilted cloth handmade bookcover. The problem is that it's not quite as wide as I need for the book I want to use with it. It's basic construction is one layer of pre-quilted fabric edged in bias tape and then folded over and sewn to make the end pockets to hold the book cover.

So I'm thinking of ripping the seam out of the back flap and sewing in velcro at the top and bottom so I can adjust the width to fit different books as needed.

Has anyone tried this? Problem is I can't use more than 1/4 inch velcro at the most because the book is 9 5/8 high and the cover is 10 1/8 high.

I suppose I could just sew it closed instead but I thought adding some adjust-ability would be nice. Anyone have any other ideas for solving the problem?
