This is a "Bathina Bag" that is recon'd from old clothes. This was originally a really cute skirt with camo on the outside and black with white polka dots on the inside. I thought it was a super cute combination and couldn't just throw it out since it no longer fit. Unfortunately I forgot to take a before picture so I did the best I could after the purse was finished. You can see where it used to fit into the skirt. (This purse isn't really as small as it looks in the picture compared to my giant hand, it is approximately 9" wide).

Here is a link to the pattern I used:

I love it! Very cool and a great way to reuse something you love.

Was that pattern easy enough to follow? I was thinking of making one for my little girl but since I am so new to sewing I'm a bit scared. Wink

Thanks for the compliments!!

I'm fairly new to sewing as well and it was pretty easy to figure out. The lining of purses always confuses me for a few minutes but I manage to figure it out. If you want to make it and need any help along the way don't hesitate to ask me!

Very cute!  Can you explain how you did the handles?  I can't figure out from the instructions what she's doing there...  Thanks!
