Reuse Reuse

My grandkids were here over last weekend and I cut off some pants for Taylor. She wanted capris. This is the leg of the pants made over into a purse for a 11 year old. One leg is the body of the purse and the other is sewn together for the flap. I added buttons layered on top of each other to make the flowers. Another leg of used jeans was used for the handle.

I lined it with some fabric with butterflies on it. It also has a pocket on the inside for all her small stuff. She wanted a purse at her dad's and so now she has one. I should make a small wallet for her too. On to the next project. Chris

I love using reusing things to make something new. Good job!!

Hi Chris. Your purse turned out great and I know that Taylor is going to love it. I think she would really appreciate a matching wallet too. Such a wonderful way of recycling.
P.S. Glad to hear that hubby is doing well.
