Big Thing For Bibles


If you have followed Rose Vignettes for a while then you know I have
a BIG "thing" for Bibles!

This one is my fav! I like it because it is a thumb index bible. So if I'm in Church or Bible Study I can find the scripture super fast.... It's a little like cheating. :)

Any hoo... This weekend I was inspired to make a couple of covers... Just for fun...
There were some beautiful examples in the recent edition of Somerset Life (LOVE!)

It turned out really well. A little bit of stitchin' and a lot of stitch witchery...

On this one, I coffee stand an antique hanky....
a little bit of lace... a little bit of stich witchery and

Viola!

God's inspired word!

I wish my Bible had the thumb dividers. That would make it so much easier to find the scriptures. It seems that before I find the right page, the pastor has moved on to the next one. Your Bible covers are beautiful. I love the little bird on that cover. He is so cute. I have a thing for birds, and I think it is stronger now that we are waiting for spring to arive bringing them with it.

I love that. I keep thinking about covering my study Bible. It has a hard cover...and isn't very attractive. Now maybe I will!

What a wonderful idea! I'd love to make one. Maybe I'll try. I used to make covers for photo albums so it would probably be similar. Thanks for the inspiration!

Blessings,
Kathy

Ok I loved your covers so much and my poor bible is so worn (clean bible= dirty heart, dirty bible= clean heart) that I went out to buy the Sommerset magazine. It was at a Border's going out of business so I got it for 40% off. Now if I could just find the time to sew. :)

Liz, these are truly wonderful. I wonder if my rudimentary skills would be enough to whip up something similar. . . I carry a 5x7 size Bible in my purse, and the edges need some closure to protect the inside. Hmmmm. Beautiful inspiring project! Thanks for sharing!
