This purse is so easy that a child could make it. Really it’s just made by cutting the cuff off of a pair of pants, sewing together the cut edge, and sewing a ribbon on for a strap… I made this into a tutorial for the kids.
If you make one of these, I would love to see it! I’ve set up a flickr group for everyone to show-n-tell what y’all make from my tutorials!
find cute pair of worn out pants. these have huge holes in the knees.
make a straight cut (below the worn out knee) the length you’d like your purse to be.
turn inside out and sew together the cut edge. I surged it but you can do a straight stich.
sew a lenth of ribbon on for the strap.
Enjoy your new purse or give them as gifts! My 5 year old daughter is showing the one that she just made!
