I love to sew and I especially love to repurpose old things into something new. A few weeks ago I was over at Made it on Monday and I saw her really cute pants transformed into a purse and I couldn't resist making one for myself. It is really not that hard. I cut a pair of pants all the way up the inseam on both sides and then used the fabric for my purse parts, and I used the old pants waistline for my purse strap. You can use an old purse as your pattern outline, or just wing it and cut as you go.
Then, to line the purse I used a shirt that I don't wear anymore. I tried to get a picture of the lining, but it came out too grainy. I know you all know what the lining of a bag looks like anyway.
For the little fabric flowers, cut strips of old tee shirt and then cut a circle in your desired flower size and just twist the flower into shape and glue it to your circle with the glue gun. You should make one of these. Its so fun to see your pants and shirt get turned into a purse!
