looky looky i sewed !!!

In my desperation to protect my Bible and at the same time to add some cuteness, I managed to steal an hour of my busy afternoon to make this.

I actually had a nice fabric cover for this Bible, but that was made (by me) years ago and it was slightly worn out.

The reason for this?

Well, 2 weeks ago, I joined THE GREAT ADVENTURE. It’s a short 8-week course called “A Quick Journey Through The Bible”, by Jeff Cavins and Sarah Christmyer.

In our 1st session, Jeff Cavins mentioned in his speech that we would probably go buy ourselves a new Bibles at the begining of a new bible course or when we decided to start reading the bible, in the hope of motivating ourselves to complete (and enjoy) reading the Bible. It was a joke he made, but a rather truthful insight of human nature.

Anyway, I’m not intending to buy a new Bible. I love my Bible, and I have journeyed with this particular Bible for many years already. It’s a nice and easy bible to read, albeit slightly huge in size. So, this new cover, is my way of communicating to my brains that I do indeed HAVE a NEW BIBLE ! ^^

The cover is made of one of my favourite fabric of nesting dolls in blue. Loving the prints!
And because I need to carry to class every week, and it’s quick a heavy book, I made it with handles… for easy carrying…

See the ironing board behind the Bible? Well, I was prepping for a DIY project. I’ll talk about it in my next post. Meanwhile, wishing all of us a wonderful day ahead!
