I am in love with these purses that people make using hardcover books! Here is my honest try to recreate it. I intended it to be a wallet, but its bigger than the average one.
I had the hardest time getting the pages and binding out. It was a pretty old book. I’m guessing books that were made twenty-so years ago, were better quality than those make nowadays.
Here’s my inspiration: Book bag via Countryliving.com
Thanks to Country Living for posting a tutorial (that I should have followed).
Anyways all who are reading this, please don’t make up the steps as you go like I did. Follow the directions! There are many, many examples and tutorials just search ” book purse” in your search engine. I’m not even going to list my steps, because I don’t even remember what I did.
Here’s my book wallet—er—book purse? Book something….
I love the artwork on the cover. The book was a poems and rhymes book for kids. Fun pictures always come from kids books. I would love to make one out of a Dr. Seuss book. Most likely I will try to make this again, but this time follow the directions.
