My mom bought a new bible recently, and this one is bigger than regular bibles, so she needed a new cover. I thought it would be great to make her one so I did some research and found this tutorial from Tracy’ Treasury. I was going to follow her tutorial exactly but I couldn’t find a zipper long enough, so I had to improvise. For this cover there is just 2 slip pockets on the inside for the front and back of the bible to go into, and then I added the brown stripe pieces on the front and back 1)to anchor the straps to and 2)to add some contrast. Also, instead of having fabric cut from a bolt I bought 1 fabric quarter for the outside and 2 fabric quarters for the inside. I also used regular brown fleece for the interfacing and added brown piping around the edges.
