Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

I was intrigued with this DIY zipper book clutch project since it is inspired by designer Kate Spades book clutches that are literally hundreds of dollars. The instructions, while clearly written and photographed, lead me to believe this may not be an easy project after all but one worth trying with a thrifted book of course!

Although I have been sewing for many decades and can accomplish crafts, this clutch is NOT easy to make mine looks like .

Umm...I love this! I definitely need to make this DIY clutch!

This is LITERALLY the perfect gift for any book lover. I'm going to make one of these ASAP! Love, love, LOVE IT!

This is one of my favorite sewing ideas EVER!
