Upcycled Book Club

Hans Christian Andersen's Fairy Tales - handbag made from a book

This super-cute handbag is made from a pre-loved copy of Hans Christian Andersen's fairy tales found on the dusty shelves of the local charity shop.. Although he was a prolific writer, Andersen is best remembered for his fairy tales that have been told and passed through the generations and have been translated into more than 125 languages.

With its lining fabric and handles, made from an upcycled belt, that beautifully complement the cover design this is a lovely one-of-a-kind item. With a reinforced spine, gold book corners to protect its edges and measuring 23.6 x 17.5 x 3.2 cm (9.29 x 6.88 x 1.25 in) it is able to carry a few small personal items. It closes with an elasticised loop and a feature button.

This bag is the perfect gift for the literature lover in your life or as a way to re-connect to the stories of your childhood.

Upcycled Book Club is situated in Brunswick, Victoria. If you are in the area, convo me about a local pick up and avoid paying shipping costs.

“But a mermaid has no tears, and therefore she suffers so much more.”
