Book Handbags [I Want It]

These handbags are just the cutest thing ever!

A Spoonful of Chocolate Hope sells these hand made bags on etsy.

I wonder how functional they are? Either way, I would probably leave it on my bookshelf and wait for someone to visit so I can brag about my very cool purchase.

I wonder if she takes requests? I would love The Color Purple, The Bluest Eye or What Was She Thinking?: Notes on a Scandal (I just checked her site, she makes custom orders!)

But wait! You can make your own book handbag! HGTV has a step-by-step tutorial on how to make one. There is also a YouTube tutorial video showing how to make a bag from CurblyVideos:

Full disclosure, I doubt I will attempt this, but you might be more crafty than I!

I just found another shop on etsy making these bags as well. I will probably end up purchasing a bag from one of these sellers.

  1. Wow, that's beyond awesome! I would like to say that I would try to make my own, but I know I won't so will have to order as well. :) Great find!

  2. @Samara Thanks! I still haven't decided which one I want.
