Lilly*Blossom book bags are ideal for catching a few chapters of your favourite book on the way to work or relaxing on holiday by the beach.

They make the perfect original handmade gift for any book lover. This sewing guide will show you how to make them. It has step-by-step instructions in straight forward language, complete with close up photographs showing you every step of the way.

The bag is made from simple rectangular shapes so there is no difficult measuring.

This finished book bag will cover an average 600 page paperback measuring approximately 13cm x 22cm and 3-4cm deep.

It has a soft wadding between the layers of fabric which will protect your book. Attached is a beaded bookmark which hangs stylishly when the bag is carried, adding a touch of luxury. Simply Insert your book into the cover and it's turned into a bag which you just open to read, what could be easier.
