Crochet: Bible/Book Cover Finished

Here's my bible cover.
I think I could have made the handles a little longer. And then I have this applique that I'm wondering how to attach. The directions say to iron it on, and it also says don't put it on delicate fabric. Is yarn delicate? The lady at JoAnn's said I should sew the applique onto the yarn and put some fabric behind it. And then, I never did figure out how to crochet a button hole. I looked on YouTube but I only found an idea where I could do it using this tunisian style. So I what I did was just chained enough stitches to go around the button.

You should probably sew on the applique. But first, edge it with single crochet, and then stitch it with a chain stitch and matching yarn onto the book cover. That way it has some give to it.

That is just the cutest thing! I've seen a few made of cloth but I love that this one has it's so soft and the handles are more flexible.

The young man I gave this too likes it as well, so I'm glad.
