Etsy Shop Chick-Lit Designs creates the most lovely book clutches!

via Etsy
Michelle from Chick-lit designs is making the most lovely book clutches and kindle covers out of used books.  You can read all about her on Etsy as she was a featured seller back in May.  She finds used books and converts them to covers and clutches that are one of a kind art pieces.  After seeing the kate spade dictionary clutch, I was inspired to attempt making one myself.  It is not as easy as is may seem...
I stumbled upon Michelle's shop while doing research for a post on etsy finds a while ago.

I think I would really like to carry a clutch that had actually been a real book that someone used to read that has now been given a second chance as a fashion accessory!  The price for most of her clutches is $155 which is much  less than the kate spade version.  I also like the idea that is is one of a kind.  So Unique!

Have a happy day!

It's really nice to read about the unique ways of converting old used books into such useful cluches. The idea is great !. It keeps the long used books cover safe for a more longer period as they are being changed into safer cluches.
