Hey guys, this is my first step by step. I found part of a chambray button up shirt in our rags and I decided to make a little bag :) It's small but the perfect size for one book, hence the name. I think it would be perfect for those times when you just need to carry small things. Enjoy!

You will need:
Old button-up shirt (not stretchy material)
Sewing machine, thread
Needle & Thread (if you want)

Step 1: Cut Out the Pieces

First cut out the main bag material from the front of the shirt, pocket side. Cut it so it's twice the length of the desired bag length. Sorry I couldn't get any pics of this stage.

Then, cut out the strap from the button placket. Cut right along the edge (see picture) to the desired length.
Very nice! Simple and practical :)
