Novel Idea


Love the idea of a book clutch but don't want to spend $$$? For just $, here's a DIY Book Clutch from Runway DIY. I'm always amazed by her creative ideas.

Just how much is $$$? The tutorial was inspired by French designer Olympia Le-Tan's embroidered book clutches that start around $1,300. I would love a "copy" of The Great Gatsby!


For $$ you can pick up a Kate Spade "book-of-the-month" version.

Barnes and Noble Leatherbound Classic Series
Pride and Prejudice (Found in store ~ $12 ) // Sense and Sensibility $10.80

I think I will go for the $ version. Step 1 complete. I couldn't decide on just one. Plus I have a backup in case anything goes wrong. (I feel like I should read them before they are gutted.)


Which book to choose? "50 Classic Matchbook Girl Novels" from the latest issue of Matchbook Magazine is a great resource.
