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