Craft witchery

I don't know about you guys, but I drag my books with me everywhere. And, I'm pretty damn nutzo about wrinkles, scratches, etc, so I decided to figure out a tote to protect them. Since the creativity vein has switched channels and is dumping into the sewing outlet, I decided to make book totes from reclaimed blue jeans. The one pictured above would be a snug fit for a Twilight sized novel, but will easily hold two novels of Shiver's size, and since it's one of my favorite novels EVER, I used it to make the pattern.

I love that idea! I just might have to copy you (I'd have to dust off my sewing machine first).

That is an awesome tote! And my favorite pair of jeans recently bit the dust. This would be an interesting way to keep them around.
