The other day I was holding the Moleskin “notebook” Iphone cover in my hand, but last minute I decided against it since I remembered this post by Le Blog de Sushi. I really love the idea of carrying my Iphone and maybe some small change in a little book but I couldn’t let go of the idea that my “Iphone book” should be more to the looks and likes of the embroidered canvas book clutches by Olympia Le-Tan! With a pricetag of around $1000 the Olympia Le-Tan books are a bit out of my price range leaving me with a potential diy and thus a book brewing afternoon:)

    Sushi is one of my favourite bloggers. I think that this idea to carrying phone is very unique and interesting. You know, I think it has more pluses. I mean, not many people would guess that you hide your phone in the book ^_^ please! it’s amazing idea when you don’t want someone stole your phone 🙂 or imagine that situation that you are in restourant and you leave “book”, then someone find this, open and… surpirse! lol. 🙂 but yeah. i love this idea and i’d love to have something like that cus i love things. i’m obsessed with them. anyway. very good post.
    ps: i’ve seen that you posted blogs with fake ears which you like. would you like to check mine? i’ve posted two days ago post with ears where i look like bunny from wonderland and it’d be a honour if you checked this <3 much love !

    Awesome images. Love the idea of the little book. I’d have to go with The Great Gatsby. Currently obsessed.
