Calling all Nancy Drew fans!

Hi! I am loving summer...how about you? I've got a long list of projects I'd like to work on from pinterest. This weekend my goal was to turn this....
into one of these:

I've been looking for the right book and I found the Nancy Drew book on Friday; it was only 1.00 and in awesome condition! There are several tutorials floating around online for this project. I read several and decided this one suited me the best.  So, I gave it a try and here is the final result:
The hardest part of making this purse was cutting the book apart! I love Nancy Drew...I read all of them as a kid.  I used a blue checked fabric for the lining; it was hard to get a good picture of the inside....sorry! It's actually very small for a purse. I can only use it when I don't have a lot to carry! But it's a novelty and that's why I like it. : ) 

Next week I'm off to the MN Conference for PreK-K teachers! Until then, I plan on doing a little crocheting....here's my inspiration:

Happy Summer!
