I'm sure yall all remember how I recovered our throw pillows. If you don't, check back to this post. Okay, now that your memory's refreshed... you'll note that I wanted to add one more pillow to the mix. I wanted a BIG pillow. So, back in September when Joanns was having lots and lots of sales, I bought a pillow form. I finally got around to making a cover for it last week. I used scraps of fabric from the other pillows, and added some Kona coal to it.

|See how big it is compared to the other pillows? I love that! :)|
Earlier this week, I decided that I really didn't like my Bible cover. I made it from an old Lily Pulizter shirt that I had. Well, it never really fit that well, and always looked so bunched up. So, the other day, I decided I could do a better one. And I did.
|this picture's actually upside down... but you can see more of the binding which I used the herringbone for. The back three panels are reversed from the front three.|
Here are the inside flaps/pockets (which, incidentally, work great to hold my papers that are in my Bible, too). :)
Now that I've made one, I can easily see what I'll be making for gifts. I love that my Bible is monogrammed with my name but this definitely makes it even more personalized. I'm debating asking my MIL to monogram the front of it for me on the Kona Azalea solid. What do yall think? Do you think a big ol' southern monogram would look good or just leave it as it is?
And just because I love to look at it, here's one more picture of it! :)
