This really didn't turn out like I planned, but I still like it Smiley

And........ Here it is!
http://i40.photobucket.com/albums/e236/moenok/bags/projects002.jpg

the inside
http://i40.photobucket.com/albums/e236/moenok/bags/projects016.jpg

and the book it was before!
http://i40.photobucket.com/albums/e236/moenok/bags/projects001.jpg

It has a zippered pocket inside, a non-zippered pocket inside and has leather handles (a belt!)

     Total Cost:
Zipper - $0.10
Lace - $0.12
Book - $0.50
Fabric - $0.10 (it's a guess)
Everything else - 0 (junk)
        Total = $0.82 CAD!!! Oh so Cheap!
Thanks for looking  Kiss

I have a reader digest book that has been butchered and painted, I never thought of a zipper top for it. Genius.

Haha, I'm reading King Solomon's mines right now. Sadly it's a paper back so I can't turn it into a fashionable bag when finished...

Heh, is it a terribly boring book? It seems like it. Cheesy Isn't is about those people and they're in Africa maybe and there's diamonds in a mine and stuff?
