I just love all of the book purses and clutches people are making. I work at a library and have lots of access to free and cheap books, so I decided to try it. I made one with a reader's digest condensed book first but it didn't turn out so well, so this is my second attempt. I'm much more happy with this one. It is a pretty turquoise book I found that has the author's name imprinted on the cover (elizabeth goudge? I've never heard of her). I got some cute purpley fabric from joann and used ribbon (the type you'd use for a belt) and d-rings to close it. And best of all, its holding up great even without any sewing. I can see many more of these, especially some with handles, in my future....

Here's a pic of the front of the book:

and the inside when the clutch is open:

and here's a top view when its closed:
