Sewing Project: Bible Case

I have been doing a few little sewing projects since my mom gave me her old Singer sewing machine, and here's one I have completed. I free handed this- making the pattern by cutting around my Bible. It fits a little tight, but I like it!

I added this eyelash trim to the top of the case to add some fancy to my case... and that was a mistake. It was HARD to sew! The loops of thread caught on the sewing foot and would mess up the stitches. What I really needed was a pair of small scissors to cut the little threads when they caught on the foot. So, what I'm tryin' to say is that it's not sewn the neatest. :P I will know what to do differently next time.

I did this project all myself; my mom didn't even help me! :)
