How to add to our Notebook Cover to make a Bible Cover with Straps

Suzanne has very kindly shared how she modified our In the hoop Notebook Cover to add straps and snap closure for her amazing Bible Cover.

Suzanne has also shared the embroidery files to create matching Straps

(for 6x11 hoop - or bigger)

DOWNLOAD FREE STRAP FILE

If you have a smaller hoop, you could make your own straps on your sewing machine

Thank you so much Suzanne


When Suzanne shared her original Bible Cover on our Facebook Group, she had so many messages of interest.  Suzanne has very kindly shared these photo Instructions.

This is version 2 of her Bible Cover which includes an additional pocket and pen holder

Carrying on from the video

  • Stitch the back of the Quilted Bag as per Quilted Bag Instructions
