Does anyone know how to paper-back a piece of fabric? I have a favorite piece of material that I'd like to use on the cover of a book.

As in make it stiffer, or line it with something?

If that is what you mean, I can think of a few reasonable options - one is to use freezer paper/butcher paper, and iron the shiny plasticized side onto the fabric.  Second is to use a spray adhesive to glue the paper and fabric together.  Third would be to not use paper, but to use fusible interfacing and iron that on.

I wanted to line the back of the fabric with paper, so that I can use it as a book cover and the glue won't bleed through. I think I'll try the interfacing since I have that on hand. Thanks! =3

Would starching it work?
