A few years ago I made a cover for a friend's bible. She recently got married and she and her husband received a new bible as a wedding present. She asked me to make a cover for this bible. It is very thick, so I made a strap with a snap to keep it closed. I also made a pocket from a ladies handkerchief in the back to hold the card from the gift giver. Finally, I made a matching square bottom bag to carry it in.
