Embroidered Mini New Testament

I've been working on an embroidered cover for a mini bible I had.  I used a mix of silk, cotton & metallic threads.  For stitches I used satin stitch, split stitch and french knots for the pomegranate seeds.
It was appliqued onto the black base cover and gold metallic thread was used in a blanket stitch around the edge.

Then added black satin ribbons to tie the sides together as it looked rather unfinished without that.

I'm now working on a second one in purple with a Celtic cross on the front and thistles on the back.  I intend to leave the spine plain in case the buyer would like a name, initials or a date added.

This is the pocket bible it will go on.

If anyone is interested in these, they will be for sale.  Send me a message or leave a comment.
