handbook for the recently deceased

So I’m going to be female Betelgeuse for Halloween and wanted to make a prop/purse so what better than the Handbook for the Recently Deceased.

I found a cardboard book box at Joann Fabrics. I found images, touched them up and made them to fit the size of the book. I printed them on fabric printer paper, ironed heat bond onto the fabric, then ironed it onto the book.

It looks pretty sweet. I made it look like an old book with the iron by heating certain spots longer. Added purse handles and closure. I’m not sure if I want to leave the inside as is or put some padding or something in there..
