Quilted Scripture Case

 We have a tradition in our family of giving a set of scriptures to our children when they are baptized. This August my daughter turned 8, so it was time to get a set of scriptures for her. Which meant she needed a scripture case....

(We are members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. Click here if you want to learn more about what I believe) 

I don't have a ton of time to sew these days, so if I can find something pre-made that's cute and does the job, I'll usually go that route.
(I usually like to save my sewing time for English Paper Piecing on the couch in the evenings) 
I looked around at the scripture cases that were available and none of them were really jumping out to me, so I went to my stash and pulled some fabrics.
The main floral is Rifle Paper Co Birch Floral in Periwinkle from the Les Fleurs line, and the other prints are just random ones I had in my stash. 

I drafted my own pattern for this little case and it turned out darling. There are a few things I would tweak next time I make one, but overall it turned out just as I envisioned it. 

I have one more case to make for my almost 10 year old, because after seeing little sis's case, she pulled some fabrics of her own and has deemed her store bought case not quite what she wants. ;) And... I love that they still think it's cool that mom makes things for them, so I will happily make her a case as well.
