My friend gave me these pants (that she absolutely loved) because they were too big, well, they are too big for me now so I was going to donate them or something... While she was over I looked at them and said "wouldn't these make a great bag??" because they have fantastic pockets. She totally agreed so I decided to make her a bag out of them. I used some scraps of this gorgeous floral I had laying around for the liner and I cut the waistband of the pants to use around the top seam of the bag because I liked the detail of the belt loops. It turned out just as I had pictured in my head and I'm sad that I have to give it to her Sad Oh well, she's paying me for the work!

I wish I had a before pic... grrr!

Here we go!
An action shot for size reference.

Pocket for water bottle.

Other pocket from the pants sewn on in patch-style into the interior of the bag.

Cute interior fabric. See the tag from the pants? "These used to be pants, see the tag??"

Other random bag shots to show details and such.
