She’s one of those people that can make anything with a pattern, and if she doesn’t have a pattern, she’ll make herself one.
I’m definitely not that talented in the Sewing Department, so I appreciate all the projects she’s willing to share here on Lil’ Luna.
Recently, she made our nephew the cutest SCRIPTURE CASE.
It’s so stinkin’ adorable, and I LOVE it!!

Cut TWO 6 ½ x 8 ½ inch rectangles
These will be the inside pockets.
Cut TWO 12 x 2 inch rectangles
These will be the handles
