Remember the bookbags you carried back in elementary school? If you were lucky, Mom took you back-to-school shopping for slacks, shoes and a new bookbag to hold all those textbooks. I can’t remember what my last bag looked like. But when I started playing around with discarded textbooks, I knew what my next bookbag could look like.

Long before I bought shoulder bags made from a Guatemalan coffee sack and knitted plastic grocery bags, and way before upcycling or DIY were terms I’d actually heard of, I started making book purses.

Happy to report there are several, new-to-me book purses in production. Here are a few from the archives.

  1. Oh, dear heart, I never had a book bag for school. They hadn’t come up with them as a tool for books in my school days. Lunch was carried in a small brown paper bag. Honest! I did have them for my kids though.

  2. bag a book yes, book a bag yes, but a bookbag looks great.
