Pant Leg Purse

Make this purse from recycled pant or shirt sleeve!

by Craftbits (shellie wilson)

What you need

End of a shirt sleeve, or end of a pair of pants.
Scissors
Needle and thread.

Instructions

Cut the sleeve/leg to the depth you want your bag to be, then turn it inside-out so that you can sew the bottom of the tube-shape.

Sew the bottom of the tube so that the hem is at the top of the bag (to strengthen the edge of the bag).

Turn the bag right-side-out, and sew on a handle (you can use fabric or belting material).

A clasp is optional to close your bag.

Then just sew on decorations of your choice and you’re done!
