book what book??

I've been away for a while again , sorting and changing a few things about but now ready to craft again , so with that in mind and after enjoying making my altered books (which i haven't posted yet) , I got to thinking about what else I could do with them ,and why does a book just have to be a book??? In the back of my head I wanted to create a handbag , I'd seen a celeb with one and was won over . I spent a few nights thinking about how I wanted it to look , of course it had to be vintage but elegant too and above all else practical to use. I started with some beautiful fabric in my stash a few pearly buttons (thanks Mum) and some vintage lace along with some beaded handles I made and a fabric rose,and after many a hair-pulling moments the bag is complete ...........
