11  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Bag made from old military pants! on: April 02, 2011 04:39:29 PM
This was my first attempt at making anything larger than the size of my hand  Cheesy

My husband had an extra pair of BDU pants laying around that he doesn't wear anymore since switching over to the new Navy uniforms, so I decided to cut them up and make myself a bag! It's not lined because I couldn't figure out how to do that, but it still works for me! The pockets are functional and the back side has functional pockets as well (the normal ones found on the front of pants).

Here's the link since I can't post a picture yet




I also attempted to make the Keyka Lou business card wallet and I think it turned out pretty well. It was super easy to make too!

Has anyone made one or know where to search for patterns specifically for one that involve cutting an actual military uniform top?

My husband has an old top he no longer wears and I want to turn it into a bag but I don't know where to begin as far as cutting it!

I'm looking to do something along the lines of this:

I really like those!

I purchased a sewing machine a couple of months ago and haven't opened it yet (my husband and i moved overseas and we're waiting on our stuff to get here). I think my first project is going to be a wallet but I'm nervous lol.
