Yet another book purse! Hand-made handles to match, button enclosure, and sporadically decorated with accenting buttons. I love buttons...
Enjoy!

No there is no tute on the actual purse... SORRY... but I did write a tutorial for the handles quite a ways back.

Whoa-that is so cool! My librarian friends would love that. I'm gonna have to play around with that idea-please write a tute!
Nice work!

Sorry I will not be writting a tute as I sell these bags.
I'm sure that if you did a quick search you'd be able to find something similar on craftster with a tute.
There are tons of book purses out there!
