if you don't mind me asking, how did you attach the inside fabric to the book? glue?

yay for you, it looks really nice.

Interestingly enough, Leah's book of craftster crafts has an unusual approach to atttaching the lining. She uses iron on webbing for all but the edges which she hot glues. I don't think I could do it that way (have promised myself very little exposure to hot glue techniques), and you may need a stronger bond as the book gets bigger, and presumably, heavier.

What a great idea! Too bad our libraray had our booksale in June and I didn't buy any books big enough to turn into a purse...guess there are still garage sales and flea markets I can look into! This is just so neat...I hope I can try it out soon.

Nelly, thanks for the idea. My sister is a nurse and I often see nursing books at one of the thrift stores I visit--in fact, I think I've seen the very one you used--so I might do something like this one day.

I remember this book always being around the house when I was little. There's even the current copy on my book case! You've totally inspired me to make a "thinking of you" gift for my mom!(she's only been a nurse for FO-EVA)

thank you Smiley for being inspiring

you did really well on it. i LOVE the fabric inside. I just made a book purse myself and it didn't turn out half as good.
