My Book Lover Bag

Added Sep 10, 2011

O Porto, Portugal






I know that this doesn’t exactly qualify as a sewing project, but I’m just so proud that I wanted to share with the Burda community (:
I bought this book six months ago, but I didn’t had a chance to read it, because my lovely nephews decided that it was a good paper to rip and draw on. So instead of throwing it away, I decided to use the one thing that they didn’t ruined – the cover.

This is the story of this lovely bag (:
I followed several tutorials around the web, like this one-

Hope you liked it (:

    I think I’ll make a bag like this! Just wondering though, is the bag strong? I don’t want to make a bag that will fall apart ><

    Cute project! As a bibliophile it always makes me sad to see a beautiful destroyed. I’m glad you found a way to repurpose it :D

      Agree, it always feels wrong to throw away a ruined book!

    I’m glad (in a way) that your nephews destroyed the inside pages! And that was a great idea you had. It makes a beautiful bag!
