    I’m sorry, those atrocious ‘book-purses’ made me shudder. Why disfigure a book like that???

    • SlapDashMom at Reply

      I pick up books from the goodwill that have pages missing, are torn, etc and use those. :)

      • Patsy Behrendt at Reply

        Personally, I love the book purse. As for disfiguring a book, some of the junk that is published these days should be disfigured and a purse would be the only good thing that ever came out of the book!! I intend to make one as soon as I can get a set of handles. I love it!!! Thanks so much for posting this!

  6. Thank you so much for the feature! Much appreciated. What a great list!
