The Bible cover

A leather Bible protector

A patchwork leather bible cover, with a wicker basket in the background.

January 2020
I had a few thoughts as to how I was going to make this. I *really* wanted stitch-lines between all of the squares, but reasoned that it would be too messy in the long run. Larger patches perhaps, but... nah, this one had to look clean. I did however stitch all the way around the edges, which looks very clean ^_^

I had been gifted a fairly large pile of random leather scraps, and I've been using them to make all kinds of things. I like it, I made sure that no colour was touching its same colour, and more or less just worked from one piece outward, working with what the scraps gave me.
The Holy Bible, a reddish pink version, inside of a patchwork leather case, with leather flap holding it inside.The bible and cover sitting on a wicker basket, the patches showing the blues, reds, and browns, with a yellow button for the clasp.
For added fun, on the inside I added pages from my Rosary prayer book just for added panache. They're waterproof too, so it should be good strong paper to hold up to use :D. I added a button to either side, and had actually tried 3 or so different straps to hold the bible in before I decided on this one. I wanted it to look a little bit scraggly because, well, I'm a little bit scraggly lol. It came out well ^_^

They were glued onto the base with automotive carpet glue, which is like ridiiIiiculously powerful glue. The fabric of time will tear before this thing does XD
