Wow! My first post! Here's a purse I made from an underwire maribou bra. Sooo easy!
All hot glued. I guess it's kinda a ripoff of the Red Hat purse, but I just love how it came out! My daughter wants to take it to Prom!

1. cut back off of bra, leaving about 1/2" to be turned glued to the inside.
2. Cut off straps
3.  tuck in center front of bra to the inside- glue down.
4.  add any embellishments you want- here is where i added some trim from an old shower curtain to the bottom.
5. glue it together around the underwire.
6.  Add the back clasp from the bra, gluing it to both inside parts
7.  Add your handle- I used a string of sequins- not real sturdy- but I think in retrospect, a nice necklace would have been cool.
There you go! Embellish the heck out of it (I used an old earring, and more string sequins), and enjoy!

hahaha, that is so cool. Everyone has seen those purses made out of jean pockets... but made out of a bra?! So original.

Very cute too. It definately has that prom look.

haHA!  that's hysterical, i love the purple - it looks store-bought, but imagine how funny it would be to tell people what it was when they asked where you got it  Shocked
ohh i have to try this - if not for the laugh-factor, then for the fact that it's totally cute (^_^)
