Not What I Was Expecting Purse

3 Jun

Sometimes things just don’t go the way you planned.

Yesterday I pulled out my sewing machine out with a project in mind. Years ago my mom made a purse out of an old pair of pants. I wanted to make my own version and create a tutorial based off of April’s round bottom bag tutorial. I had an old ripped pair of black work pants set aside for the project and some cute fabric scraps tucked away for an appliqued planet earth embellishment.

This is how the finished purse turned out. Aside from still being a purse made from pants it looks absolutely nothing like what I envisioned, but I freaking love it.

Sometimes things just don’t go the way you planned and turn out FANTASTIC!


P.S. Sorry, I didn’t make a tutorial either.

      Thanks! I am so happy with how it turned out. I did use another pair of pants after I discovered that the pants I planned on using were still fixable, and more useful as, well…. pants.

        Love it when that happens! The fixable part, that is. And … uhm … the reuse if it isn’t fixable. 😆
