Recycled Book Purse Fannie Farmer Cookbook by by smartdesigning

Posted By SmartDesigning on General Crafts

This Book Purse is made using the beautiful cover of “The Fannie Farmer Cookbook”. And I’m so glad I found more of one of these books during my treasure hunts. Because I want to keep one of them for myself! The cover shows a graphic illustrations for fish, plums, avocados and onions! I did a little dance in the store when I found the fun carrot print that I used to line the purse. I know, it doesn’t take much to get me excited. I used a stone bead as a closure and nice wide wooden handles.

The Book Purse measures 9 x 6.75” and opens to 8.5”. It has a generous 2.5” spine. Plenty of room for a purse to carry to the grocery store... or anywhere! Would make a wonderful gift for someone who loves to cook.

I never use new or unread books for my book purses because I respect the original intent of the book. But once the book has been read it need not sit on a shelf collecting dust! This unique Book Purse gives books new life and you something smart and functional!
