Book Purse Handbag from Etsy

I like shopping at Etsy.com, and recently found this Etsy shop and this lovely purse! I love it!
I have never seen books, e-reader covers, or Ipad covers - made from books!
What a awesome idea!

You can find more information about Michelle's shop on Etsy - called spoonfulofchocolate

Michelle sent me this note ~
I originally started my business selling chocolate spoons to stir in your coffee- that backfired when June came around and my chocolate spoons started to melt in the Arizona heat on the way to the post office! So I quickly had to think of something different to make. That's when I started to make handbags out of books. I immediately knew it was something I loved to do from picking out the books, matching it with fabric and sewing... it's more of an addiction now!

I'm happy to say that I'm busier than ever and am starting to gear up for the Christmas season. A lot of my handbags are "Made to Order" and take about a week to complete, however I do have some handbags that are already pre-made and ready to ship. Sometimes people have books they own that they would like to be turned into handbags and they ship them to me! It really is something I Love to do and hope to one day quit my day time job and focus just on my handbags, ereader covers and Ipad covers!

Have a wonderful day!


  1. Oh my gosh this is so adorable, I'm going to check it out!!

  2. Just stopping in to say hi. I'm doing terrible in the coupon dept BTW ha. My daughter never remembers to pick up a paper and my printer died on me so I'm downloading them on my cell to use that way. Much cheaper too!!! No printing supplies to buy and I don't need to buy a paper. Only problem is I can't swap with anyone this way.
    Have a great week!!

  3. I love that! I would totally carry that around (if I could fit everything in it from my big ol' mommy purse). :)


I love comments, thanks so much for stopping by!
