All About Books Days Etsy Spotlight & Giveaway: Suze Loves Bagsy Me First


Bagsy Me First combines two things I love, bags and books.


I love the beautiful bags that have been made from book covers.


The owner, Kate, knows how to make a pretty and sturdy handbag.


I can spend hours looking at them, they're gorgeous.


Her work has been featured many times, also on television.


It's fabulous to be able to carry your favorite book with you wherever you go.


I'm amazed by how stunning everything looks.


Kate chooses pretty fabrics for her bags. There's a compartment for a phone and it has a lot of room for everything else you might need.


She started her business when she made a bag from a book she got for her birthday. Things gradually developed from there.


Kate has sold over 700 of her bags already.


The reviews are all raving.


Kate has a great website, visit it to find out more about her and her bags.


I'm totally in love with this shop.


Check out Kate's high quality, terrific handwork.


Have fun browsing...


And enjoy shopping!


You will love this brilliant store!

  3. They are the perfect accessory for any book lover AND even though it's a little sad the books need to be "gutted" to make a bag I was happy to find that you can have the pages of your chosen book saved and re-covered in matching fabric which is a wonderful idea!!

  48. I cannot even tell you how happy it made me to see the coin purses made with the little green Beatrix Potter books! They look exactly like the ones that I'd borrow from the school library in kindergarten! (Years later, I actually plotted to steal the books via a friend's child... Bad, I know. It didn't work out, though.)

    The 'I Remember You' bag purse is gorgeous and I love that it has little "feet"! I think it'd look even more beautiful with my tatting shuttles hanging out of it! LOL. ;-)

    Thank you so much for the chance!

    ReplyDelete
  49. I'd love to read the book because it sound like my favorite kind of book ... Normal and realistic with characters that come to life and a little bit of knowledge to be gained.

    Thank you for the chance!
