Repurposing old clothes

Emily had this skirt that was clearly too small for her but she just loved it, it also had a matching tie.  So we decided to make it into a purse.

It had shorts underneath it, so she would sew the shorts closed and add the tie for a handle.

She did most of it by herself. 
P1020802
Then we traded places (she took the camera and I took the sewing machine).  She only needed help with the backstitching.

Here it is finished. 
P1020815
She just loves it and it is a pretty decent size bag. 
P1020818
We love repurposing old things, and Emily loves sewing.

Very clever. I love this idea. I will have to try this one next time I see a skirt like that on the 50 cent rack at the consignment store. Thanks for the great idea. It looks adorable on her!
