My friend asked if I would make a cover for her new Bible and I was happy to say yes. My friend didn't give me any direction on what she wanted, but said she liked light blue when I ask what color she liked.
I like a lot of embellishment, but I didn't think that would be appropriate for a Bible cover. I pieced a white cross for the front cover (which seems like the back, but it is a Japanese Bible, so back to front) and I made two handles that could be tucked in.
I made a closure with a covered snap.
One the inside cover, I made a small pocket and put some little post-its inside.
I also stitched three thin ribbons to the center to use as markers.
