I was looking at patterns one day at Hobby Lobby, when I came across this purse pattern. The pattern actually suggested that you use a pair of pants as the fabric.
The making of this purse happened way before I started trying to repurpose clothes on my own! (without a pattern)
The pattern I used was Simplicity # 2597.
It was a fun and easy sewing project. I went shopping for a pair of kaki pants at my
local Goodwill. I think I might have paid around $4.00 for the pants.
The pants were in a great/almost new shape.
Plus, there are several other cute purse patterns included in this pattern also!
(Sorry, this is a really bad picture!)
