Book Handbags: Twilight Style

I’ve been following a certain Etsy Shop for a while now. Spoonfulofchocolate makes these awesome book handbags straight from hardback books. Most are just heavenly and I want them but they are a bit pricey! :(

Today she just posted a Twilight handbag and while I’m not OMG! about it, I’m finding it hard to resist. It has sparkles!!!

More pictures are posted on the listing. She’s selling this baby for $59 plus shipping. See? It’s pricey!

I’ve had my eye on her awesome Jane Austin cover she found.

I love the colors and I love how thick the spine is. BUT I hate the price! $69! And if you want the pages from the book you have to tack on and additional $15 plus shipping! :( I know it’s business and I know that particular book is not the cheapest but I’m still upset that I can’t afford one. :(

Anyhow, I adore her book handbags. Maybe I’ll add this to my Universal Amazon Wish list and someone can special order it for me for Christmas?

What do you think? Love these? You can even buy the instructions to make them yourself but you can’t sell them yourself.

If you decide to purchase a book handbag please let her know you saw her shop via my blog! Maybe she’ll give me a discount for some extra business? One can only hope!

ETA: I also hate the idea of ripping out the pages of a book but I would buy those pages too, which is what Michelle offers, again, for an additional cost because she creates a new cover for the pages removed with the same fabric as what she uses to line the inside of the bag.

  1. That is a really neat idea!

    But it's too bad that the only books I'd ever consider tearing apart would be ones that I wouldn't want to be reminded of every time I looked at my bag!

  2. I totally agree with La Coccinelle.

    I love that Jane Austen one. I actually have that book. We payed $20 for that book and no way I'd tear it up to make a purse. Might would do it to Twilight though. :P

    I would love to have a favorite book to tote around with me. I just don't think I can pick one! :(

  4. OMG! That's crazy...I wouldn't be able to rip my fave book, I do like the Jane Austen one though it's cute.

  5. I love those bags! What a great idea; making bags out of hardcover books.

  6. I love the idea behind these bags! So creative and personally expressive, too. I'd be hard pressed to choose a book I'd most want to showcase, though.

  7. I love those bags! I'd want a really thick book though so I could put all my stuff in my purse!

  9. I love that Jane Austen one, though I agree with you- it would be so hard to choose what book and they are pricey. I still want one though. :)

  10. I would love one of these and am MORE than willing to let her know I saw it via your blog, but it would really help if you would then post a link naar the shop. Can't find it for Google, love or money.
