Zipped Bible Cover

My mom just purchased an extra large study Bible. I figured she’d probably have a difficult time finding a cover for it (since it’s not a standard size), so I grabbed some fabric, a tape measure and gave it a go. Overall, I’m pleased with how it turned out (translation: I didn’t have to throw it away.); however, I will admit, I had no idea how to install the zipper around the corners of a closed book, so I pretty much just disregarded the depth measurement and eyeballed it. I also used wide polyester biased tape instead of fabric for the zipper which probably explains some of the side ways pulling, but it works and that’s what matters. I also included extra pockets, a tablet and pen holder in the back. Check out the free hand name embroidered on the front. Ha! Ha! Can you tell I’m proud of myself? Mom was impressed (wink!) She’s so sweet!

I took tons of pictures in the hope of posting a tutorial, but I’m thinking I should probably  figure out the zipper installation before sharing  (smile).

Keep Sewing.
