There are so many brilliant ideas online for recycling things… this is one of the coolest ideas I’ve seen yet! With all the cool books out there you can make a purse to go with different outfits! I’ve seen a lot of colorful book purses that are absolutely fabulous, like this one displayed in this post.
Etsy sells the purse that is displayed in this post for $68! If you really wanted to get creative with these, that would be a great avenue for some extra income! There are so many awesome embellishments and ideas for handles out there to make some really fabulous eye catching purses.
I usually carry a huge purse, but for nights out, I made some of these and absolutely love them. I get a lot of comments/compliments on them every time I carry them. You don’t see these being carried so it’s quite the conversation piece! I love anything that is unique and different. I tend to march to the beat of my own drum!
Could recycled book-purses be the next big eco-fashion it thing? That, I’m guessing, is what other green fashion bloggers wondered when they first saw the photos of Natalie Portman toting a “Lolita” book purse at the premier of “Black Swan.” I’m guessing that these are going to become a fashion trend in the very near future, if not already! You don’t have to be a librarian to carry this purse either!
Watch how Amanda Isernia makes this cool book purse in her step by step tutorial and go in search for that perfect book!
