Because many of the projects in this article 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 at Country Living, this book-cover purse tutorial is one of the best out there.
Ranking at more of an intermediate skill level, this craft will help you create a cute clutch in 11 steps or fewer (or more, if you’re this writer), according to writer Barbara McNamara, whose easy guide will have you carrying a new bag in no time.
We recommend having a specific book in mind before you purchase the handle kit and liner fabric. You 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 purse.
