As many of the projects in this story deal with the actual pages of a book, we thought it best to toss in an idea about how to reuse the covers as well. Brought to us again by the creative minds of Country Living, this purse tutorial is one of the best out there.
Ranking at more of an intermediate level, this craft will help you create a cute clutch in 11 steps or less (or more, if you’re this writer…), according to writer Barbara McNamara, whose easy guide will have you with a new bag in hand in no time.
We recommend having a book in mind before you go out to buy the handle kit and liner fabric, as you will want these items to coordinate through patterns or colors. Don’t forget to have your iron handy as well, to help the fabric lay straight as you cut and measure.
Also, larger, hardcover books will work better to provide space for all the various and sundries you’re bound to toss into this particular purse.
