Anyway, I did this project last night and I absolutely love it! I took an old pair of London's shorts and turned it into a clutch purse. It was so easy to make, but I must warn you that the reason it was easy is because I have no idea how to make a liner. But I figured, what the hey, nobody will see the inside anyway, right? Here's how to make one for yourself (or a friend, relative, okay, you get the gist!).
*Old pair of shorts (I used size 12 mos, but you can use any size)
*Optional: Fabric Glue (In case you don't have the sticky back velcro like me)
Cut a straight line between the bottom of the shorts to make a full opening, kind of like a skirt.
Turn the shorts inside out.
Pin the legs together.
(As for the stain, I have no idea what London does sometimes, so just ignore. Heh.)
Sew a straight line all the way across. I did a couple of backstitches on both ends to keep it from coming undone.
Cut about 1/4" to 1/2" outside of the seam you just sewed.
Turn right side out.
Take your velcro...
...and adhere it to the inside of your purse.
The finished product should look like this:
And here is the inside view.
I'm not quite complete with this. I want to had some small handles and I definitely have to add some embellishments. Maybe some flowers and an applique of some sort. I just haven't decided yet.
I really hope you enjoyed this tutorial. If you have any questions, be sure to ask. I tried to explain as easy as possible. Let me know if you tried making one yourself. I'd love to see! Have a great day my friends!
