Very cool!  Never heard of such a thing.  Did you take the pages out?  Or just cover them up?

 i took all but the first and last page out. i glued the lining to the pages that way i could fold the lining over and glue the page to the book and have nice edges at the top.

Aha!  I was wondering how you finished the edges so nicely! 

I've ordered a book off of eBay and I'm going to attempt one for my mom for Christmas.  This is exactly the kind of thing she will love. Thank you so much for sharing this!

That's super cute! Did you use a tutorial, or just kinda make it up as you go? I love it :]

Thanks for all the comments!
I've seen lots of book purses on here so I kinda "winged" it by looking at the other ones for reference. There is a tute on here somewhere, but it involves algebra and I personally hate math. No math here........There was, however, a lot of hot glue, scorched fingers, and a few choice words involved in this creation.  Grin

Would you mind making a mini tut? Like just the steps you did everything in? No need to be elaborate. I'd really love to make one, but I do not trust myself :]
