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!
