I strated making purses using my husbands old Coast Guard uniform shirts for the fabric and I am in awe at how awesome they turned out! These are my first attempts in several years at making purses and I've never done it from anything other than regular fabric.

Feedback?

They look really great. I've been planning to do the same thing with some of my Coastie's old uniforms.

These look great!  Really awesome bags.  And I'll bet they're pretty sturdy, too, considering how strong that material is.  I like the contrasting linings as well!  Nice work!  Smiley

Good work using the uniforms without making the bags bulky. The slim lines and femme linings make for some smart totes.
