    As an avid reader, I can really appreciate how nice your creation is.
    Love the fabric choice, too.

    This would work on the Bible to protect it in transport. Thanks for the idea.

    I don't really have a pattern, my SIL had one when she was here on vacation, i said to myself (self) you can make this. I spend alot of time at dr offices for hubby so this will work. If i knew how to do a tute i would, i just measured my book (add enough for the flap) and added for seam allowance. there are 2 layers with batting in between, sewn with right sides together, leave opening and turn, then added the handles, the closer was a last minute think with snaps. don't do what i did, sew your handles on before you lap it over for the pocket.

    Nice job! That is a cover that will look great just carrying it or reading from it. You may have lots of orders!

    ROFL - This reminds me...I used to use a cover for my books when I read and my DH told my friends I have been reading the same book forever. Guess you could look at it that way. I wish I had this pattern or you sold them. Hint..Hint... Thanks for sharing.

    Or you could have been reading that sexy page turner that you didn't want anyone to know you were reading. You know the one with Fabio on the cover!
