I decided to jump on the bandwagon and give book clutch's a try.  I took old vintage books and gutted them out and used old vintage fabric from the 30's to line the books with!  I'm really happy with the way these came out Smiley









they still need to be glued better around the edges and also need to either use velcro or a snap closure.  I have handles i'd like to use too but am still trying to figure out how i want to attach them!

thanks for looking Smiley

p.s. im new so if i've violated any kind of rule in here please be understanding and nicely let me know Smiley

I love those!  Absolutely fantastic!!!  I especially like the vintage buckles you used on the fronts with the ribbons.
