The Cat in the Hat DIY book purse

A few years ago I made a The Cat in the Hat DIY book purse. My daughter uses it almost daily while playing dress up but I borrow it each year to celebrate Dr. Seuss’ birthday. The no sew handbag gets many compliments and it’s a fun way to show my love for Dr. Seuss during his birthday week.

The bag is made with a real Dr. Seuss book cover and has just enough space to hold my wallet, lipstick, and keys.

The Cat in the Hat DIY book purse supplies:

  • The Cat in the Hat hardback book
  • blue, red/orange, and yellow felt
  • hot glue gun and glue
  • embellishments

Remove the pages from the book and use felt to create the pieces for the purse (handles, side, back pocket, flowers, and any other embellishments you want to add). Glue the handles to the inside of the book cover. Then add sides and inside pieces.

Make several projects using just one used book! Use the cover for this DIY book purse and save the pages to make a Dr. Seuss Cat in the Hat book page banner and DIY art.
