Using Old Novels, Book-Lover Handcrafts Purses

Texas, US-based book lover Karen H upcycles used books into useful purses.

Her handcraftedNovel Creations’ requires her to search for formerly-treasured books at garage sales, flea markets, estate sales and the used bookstore she works at.

Then she matches the fabric, handles and button enclosure.

Her book-purses range from titles such as Jane Eyre and Star Wars, to authors such as William Shakespeare and J K Rowling.

“I have an obsession to books, and of course, I work at a used bookstore,” Karen H wrote. “I noticed these great books that needed a home or they were going to take a dive into the dumpster. I was so sad about it that I decided to recycle them and make them into purses.”
