Hmmm...I have a bleach phobia and don't really use it much. I have never used it as a part of my 'creative process'.
My one concern for you in your situation is that the amount of bleach and the time needed for the cover to sit in the solution will be harmful to the actual fiber. The other concern is if the bleaching will be splotchy, causing uneven dyeing. Is it possible to by a yard of similar fabric and do a test?
If you do decide to go ahead with the bleaching, you will need to neutralize the bleach at the end of the process. Oxyclean would do this.
Sorry I couldn't be of much more help.
