My Creative Wednesday

I was a sewing machine today! Today I worked on Bible Covers for my shop.   These are my very favorite items to make, I make each one totally unique, I want each of them to be a very special one of a kind item for the people that buy them.

For the first one I made this is the pattern I picked out:
I then needed to decide on the color I wanted my handles to be, I decided to pick from one of these books that my friend brought me.  Look at all these!  There are some great pieces in here!
I decided on a pretty pink one, so I sewed up my handles first.
I then sandwiched all my layers together and pinned it in place.
I sewed it up leaving an opening for turning it right side out:
I then top stitch it to enclose the opening and iron it to make it all pretty and smooth:
See how the Bible fits into the pockets?
Once I was all done sewing, I added a few jewels to the outside for the finishing touch!
It is now all done and ready for photos and listing in my shop
You can see this Bible Cover and all the other ones I made today here.  I am listing the rest of them as soon as I hit the publish button.  I hope you enjoyed spending some creative time with me, and if you have any questions please feel free to contact me.  Have a blessed, happy Thursday everyone! ♥
