My dd and I have started to go to Sunday school and my dd received her first bible from the church. I thought that it would be a good idea to make a book cover for her bible so that 1) it would look pretty when she carried it to SS (She's a "I want to look pretty all the time" kind of girl!) and 2) this would be a good way for her to carry it.
I followed the tute from this page:

I'm pretty proud of my work!

here's mine. the fabric is from some curtains that were left in our house when we bought it. I didn't like the curtains, but I like the fabric.

Here's my daughter's:

She picked out the fabric. She saw it this morning and loves it!


I used a pink t-shirt for the inner flaps since it is a hard cover book. I used the star stitch from my machine (which I LOVE LOVE LOVE!!)

I have one more to do for my dd's friend as a birthday present. They're in SS class together and are both quite shy and I hope that if they both have nice book covers, they would enjoy going to class more.

They're great. Such a wonderful idea!

I used to cover my school books with gift bags like this.

She's a "I want to look pretty all the time" kind of girl!

My sister's the same way. I think I might just have to do this for her too!

They are fantastic!  I  agree with your daughter - that's the best fabric! Smiley   
You should definitely be proud of yourself!  I just wish my machine had that cool star stitch!!
