Here’s a shot of my old handmade case. The felt wasn’t the best idea as it pills and gets kind of ratty looking.
For my new case, I chose fabrics from my stash which are thicker, good quality materials. The outer is canvas, while the lining is an upholstery fabric.
I really liked the shape of my previous case, so I just mimicked it. For my Bible, the pattern was simple. The body is the size of a piece of copy paper, and the curved flap was made using half of a small plate.
I chose to add a separate pen holder to the interior of the flap on my new case.
I had another button picked out, but due to a brain lapse, made the button-hole to small for it. Oh well, I like this vintage recycled stone button.
After using it for a while, I’d like to make another one which is a little bigger since I keep some other papers and booklets in it. Otherwise, it’s been a sturdy little case.
