Large Quad Scripture Cover

Can I just say that I LOVE my big daddy scriptures? Because Genesis, most of Exodus, and the entire Pearl of Great Price come completely out of my old set that I got when I turned 8, Dan got me a brand spankin new set of scriptures for Valentines Day! I love how much room there is in the margins, and I love the large font.

So.... how excited was I to make a scripture case for this pretty book?

I spent weeks thinking the pattern through in my mind, and commiserating over the fabric. When it was time for execution, I was so confident. Super stoked! With camera at ready, I was snapping photos to take you lucky readers through my custom scripture case tutorial. It was looking so promising... then I placed my scriptures inside before sewing on the zipper.

Needless to say, it was a miserable failed attempt at designing my own scripture case, (what the crap was I thinking? I've never even followed a box pattern before-- why did I think I could design my own pattern?).

I dried my tears, hopped online, and found this cute scripture cover pattern on etsy at Baby Depot.

I loved the design, and I loved even more the idea of an actual pattern (seriously, my first attempt looked like the grim reaper made it!). The directions are very clear, and I'm super happy with it's functionality. Cute, right?!
