This pattern is for a scriptures carrying case that will fit the standard LDS (Latter-day Saints) Quad set or a KJV Bible and Triple combination (Book of Mormon, Doctrine & Covenants, and Pearl of Great Price). I made mine using a country blue yarn. You can make it out any color you want.

Finish off. Sew HANDLE to case starting at upper center of SPINE working up TOP leaving 40 rows for HANDLE then back down TOP, across SPINE, up BOTTOM, leave 40 Rows for second HANDLE, then back down BOTTOM lining the end with beginning on SPINE.
Sew zipper along opening. The length of the zipper will depend on how much you want the case to open. If you want it to lay flat, zipper will need to run entire distance of opening.
