Skirt, scissors, sewing machine.
This is how you do it:
First, begin creating the strap of the purse by cutting off the hem of the skirt. I cut off 4 1/2 inches. Then, cut it straight across so that it's no longer a hoop but a long strip. Fold it to where the outside is facing in, and sew all along the edges. Flip it inside and iron it flat, creating the strap for the purse. Next, begin making the base of the purse by turning the skirt inside out and sewing the hem shut. Flip it right side out and it should look like a pouch. Lastly, sew on the straps by folding 1/4 inch under and sewing a zig zag stitch in the form of a square, attaching it to the bag.
If you tackle this project, please send me a photo! We would love to see what you come up with.
