Bandana Purse

These bandana purses are really easy to make. And they look great!

What you need

Bandana
sewing pins
Ribbon for strap

Instructions

Cut the bandana in half:

Cut from that half a two inch strip, and then cut the sides from the top and bottom of that strip… 6.5 inches each:

Pin the side pieces to the main piece:

Sew it up… I used 1/4 inch seams… if you want you can just hem the edges and sew a strap on.

I sewed up another one in an opposite color and sew it on as a lining being careful to pin the strap in and sew it all right. If you do this you have to leave a spot unsewn so you can flip it.

The strap is a separate piece.

I usually use a wide ribbon or some webbing about a yard and a half (depending on how long you want it). You can either leave the sides unsewn where the strap goes and sew it on after you flip it or you can pin the strap on and sew it as you go
