What a cute project! Kate transformed a book into a little clutch, with just enough space for a cellphone and favorite lipstick. She includes the whole tutorial here if you’d like to make one too.

For family outings, I usually carry a decent sized bag with everything we might need, and room for an extra bottle of water. But for my own errands, I love the luxury of carrying a tiny bag, or even just keeping what I need in a jacket pocket, and going totally hands free!

What do you think of this book clutch? Do you need something with a strap? Would it end up lost among novels on your shelves?
