I bought some handles (about five bucks) and ribbon (two bucks) at Michael's. I also bought some Modge Podge to varnish the outside and protect it a little from scuffs and water.

My Book Bag
I've seen some of these bags made from books on various websites and etsy shops. I've wanted to make one for a while and have been on the look out for the perfect book.The Friends bookstore at the Central Library had a 50% off sale last week, and I scored some great finds - a whole big stack of books for only $7.50! Amongst the treasures was this gardening book from 1968 - and it was only a dollar. It was in a binder format so was the perfect size for a purse.
