Pants to Purse Tutorial

Turn a pair of your favorite little girls too small pants into a fabulous purse she is sure to love.

What You'll Need
  • A pair of old jeans or cords
  • Needle and thread
  • Scissors
  • Pins
  • Ribbons and embellishments
How-To

1. Cut pants just above the leg.2. Turn the top inside out.3. Line up edges and pin together. Sew the edges together.
4. Turn the bag the right way out. Add a handle by pinning and then sewing into place a coordinating ribbon. Leftover material from pant legs can also be transformed into a handle by cutting 1 - 3 inches wide with pinking shears.

5. Embellish bag however you see fit. I decked ours out with glitter spray, feathers and decorative buttons.Happy Crafting!!
