If you look back I made a BDU messanger bag for my son for school. Anyway I took the leftovers and made a purse. The flower is on a pin. That way if it annoys me there I can put it elsewhere.
Don't mind the stray string, they're just bits that fell off me and onto the bag,

Made a pocket up front for my cell

Inside

And my purty flower

Would you believe I still have scraps left over......

I was in the Air Force for 8 years.  I never thought of recon for my BDU's.  Now my mind is thinking of all kinds of ideas.  Great idea! Thanks!

You should check out the Messanger Bag I did for my son. That was done with 2 BDU shirts.

This is so cute! My husband is former air force, and we have several (maybe as many as 10) sets of BDU's leftover.  Some from his earlier years will never (never) fit him again, and I would love to use them for this, or even the messenger bag...have you posted a tute for either?  Do you have a link to a picture of your son's bag?

Follow this link and then read down a bit then you'll see in one of my replys how I made that bag. Before you start anything though, make sure you have a good seam ripper.

Thanks for the link ( I had eventually found it through your history...I was a slow thinker last night)
I asked my husband if i could rip up his shirts and he said, "Nooooo! I don't waaaant my uniforms turned into a PURSE! I liiike them the way they aaaaare."
Whiner.
So I told him that was fine, I would just get some used ones at the thrift store and instead of our name and his patches etc, my purse would say "Smith" and "US ARMY" or something, and when people asked why my purse didn't say Thompson, I would just tell them he said "no"
He's gonna think about it after he sees your picture.

PS- is that a Strat Com patch?  We were at Offutt his entire enlistment, and his 17 month post 9-11 recall.  Or is that a  USAF wide patch?...been a while.

ACC Patch. My son got his Europe patch.
1 shirt is more then enough for 1 purse. Surely he could part with just 1?
 Oh and see if you can convince him to part with a winter weight, it will make the purse more sturdy.
Friends of ours are in the navy and I'm getting his desert BDU's. Yeah!
