Quilted Patchwork Bible Carrier

I've had this little project in my mind for a while now and I'm so thrilled that it came out just how I envisioned it!
My Bible is a compact study bible, meaning it has notes and is very thick (it's also leather and kind of floppy). It's just awkward to carry around, especially when I'm trying to juggle various other things at the same time. I've tried using tote bags but it just never worked well. I wanted something that would keep it from flopping open (and that wasn't a "traditional" bible cover).

So, here's my totally custom bible carrier:

At first I had intended to use just a single fabric but then I got sucked into the quilted patchwork craze that's going on now (so much inspiration!). Oh Fransson has a little tutorial to get you started.

I basically just used all the bits and pieces of how-to I've collected in my brain to create it. It turned out just perfect!

Even a place to keep a pen and highlighter.

This is so beautiful. I've been searching for a tote to make for my bible, and it's hard to find a pattern I like. Do you have a pattern for this bag?
