Made this yesterday for a lady at church (she carries 2 bibles - hers and her husbands and hasn't been able to get a bag big enough before!).   Anyways, basic old stuff.  I did play with making a label.  This one is printed off the computer and contacted front & back, then stitched in.  Won't stand up to being washed, but looks fun.  I had run out of plastic tapestry stuff for the base, but had some bits and pieces.  I cut them to size and zig zagged them together to make one piece the right size.  Worked a treat!  Also, while at the op-shop yesterday, I bought 2 vinyl placemats for 50c which I'm going to test for bases.  Sure is cheaper than the plastic tapestry mesh.  Nothing ventured, nothing gained!

Remember the foam placemats, they work for support like bottom of bags.  I made my grandson a camera bag use this one for sides, top and bottom.  You just have to make pocket for the foam mat to fit in.   Plus you can pick these up in thrift shops and yard sale for little of nothing.......

Happy Crafting

Mrs Rabbit - That's a cool project and a great idea. Good work!

Thanks for the info on the foam placemats, too, panda!

This really is a cool project. My Bible gets ratty from carrying it in my hands all the time to church. I'm going to use this idea. Cheesy
