I am terrified of being stuck somewhere with nothing to read. Whether it's an office waiting room, a long line at the store, or a frozen-in-place traffic jam, I want to be able to pull out a book to read to keep my mind occupied. It might be a magazine or a paperback book or my Nook, but there's always something in my purse.
But I never thought that my purse could BE a book! Yep, books made into purses. These are wonderful, I want a dozen.

From the website:
UPCYCYLED BOOK PURSES !
My search starts with ♻ gently used ♻ books. They have to be unique,
eye catching, or "make a statement" type books with their covers. My
treasures come from garage sales, flea markets, estate sales, and the
used bookstore where I work. In some cases, I will purchase a new book
if there is a special request that I just can not locate used.
Searching for that perfect book is half the fun. The rest is matching
the fabric, handles and the button enclosure.
The inside pages of the book are ♻ recycled/upcycled ♻ into other
projects that I am working on currently. If you want the inside pages
from your purchase, just let me know and I will ship with your purchase
at no extra charge.
Yes! The book as a purse plus the book pages to read!
