Well, not me anymore. I had this old pair of shorts that I absolutely LOVED. But when both my uncle AND my dad commented on the...well...shortn ess, I realized it was time to retire them.

Being the newly-energized craftster that I am, I didn't throw these babies away. I made them into a purse!


The before shorts.


The after purse!


Close up of the ribbon belt.


The ribbon strap.



The back of the purse!


Well, whaddaya think? I kinda screwed up a bit, and it's bugging me, but it's fixable.
I can do a tutorial if anyone wants. It really wasn't hard.

Cute! I really like the idea of putting a ribbon through the belt loops - it's a simple way to add some great detail to the purse. oooh it would be really cool if you could change the ribbon to make it match different outfits! Anyway, very cute purse. Smiley

Oh yeah, that's smart!
I tried to tie it into a bow, but the ribbon was too wide.
I'll use thinner ribbon from now on, and then you could change it.
Thanks for your reply!
