DIY: Turn Your Book Into A Bag!

I am soooo tempted to follow the detailed instructions on Rookie ("It's A Book! It's A Bag") and turn a copy of I'M BORED into a book bag. But I am trying very hard to stick to my goal of cutting down the number of extra projects so I can make more time to read and create books.

But. I. Am. So. Very. Tempted.

If you're a crafty type and want to be tempted to, feel free to check out the instructions on Rookie, or one of the following resources:

Book Purse Tutorial - Hungry Panda Clothing

How To Make A Book Purse - WikiHow

How To Make A Purse From Old Books - Squidoo

Or get a book purse custom-made:

BookPurses on Etsy

Novel Creations on Etsy

plus many others. Just search for "book purse" and look for creators who do custom orders.
