This is my first post!  Yay! 

Here's a picture of a little bag I made from a little girl's tank top.

Here's the tank:

It's not perfect, but I think it's cute.   Smiley  (I don't think the pictures came out too well, though!)

Thanks everyone.   Cheesy  The straps were an on-the-fly decision, but if I'd thought about it more, I would have made them heavier.  They need to be a little stiffer to carry well.  But it looks supercute when carried on the wrist.  Thanks again for all your great comments!

Here's what I did:

I recreated the instructions from memory, so I hope I didn't miss any steps! 

(Oops!  I just noticed that I did forget to put in there that you should sew up the lining hole!  Just don't forget to do it before you use your bag!)  Smiley
