A New Cover for the Ugly Bible

I finally snagged a New Revised Standard Version!  For $3, at the used book store downtown while I was killing time before picking up Genevieve.

But it was so ugly.  My first idea was to decoupage the cover.  Three problems:  1. decoupage is expensive, even with a coupon. 2. Decoupage can, apparently, get sticky in humid weather.  Not cool.  3. And then, I couldn't really imagine what kind of images I would plaster my Bible with.  The obvious Christian symbols?  Neutral landscapes?  Yawn.

So I covered that baby with fabric, a la eighth-grade-paper-bag-on-the-social-studies-book.

I love it.  I take my Bible along to church now.  The right translation, plus a vintage patch for quirky sweet.
