made: bible covers


So, something completely different today. A while ago I made a cover for my own Bible, with fabric and pieces of paper that inspired me:

It only just fits and it makes my Bible very bulky, but I love it anyway :) The people at our Bible study group noticed the cover and I got to make two more!

This one is for the person who leads the smaller discussion groups. She always talks about her love for God, so when I found this stack of felt hearts I had lying around, I knew they were for her!

The second one was for a friend I met at the group. She asked me to make her a cover for their family Bible. What an honor! They really like purple, so I came up with this:

I just love this fabric. They’re actually left-overs from a skirt I made this Summer! I used some craft foam to sew the beads on and attached some stars, to represent the entire family; mom, dad and their two daughters.

I had a lot of fun making these covers! I love just diving into my fabric stash and sewing everything together that I like. And it’s very rewarding; the recipients both loved their Bible covers :)


ps This is the skirt I made in the Summer:
