My sister made this messenger bag for my birthday. She's new to sewing (she started in August of this year) and my birthday was in September. She made the bag out of an old skort and a pair of corduroy pants. I think it's so awesome and I love it so much, especially knowing that she made it for me. I've been sewing for about a year and I doubt that I'd be able to create something like this. Anyway, I took some pictures of the purse because I think it's awesome.

This is the front of the bag and the flap is made from a pair of corduroy pants. The strap is really cool because she sewed in a bunch of button holes and buttons so I can make it as short or as long as I want it to be.

This is the front without the flap to show the skort part of it with its drawstring to keep it closed.

She sewed the pocket onto the back.

This shows the inner lining and an inner pocket... plus the stuff that I had in my purse.

This totally rocks! How did she attach the leg to the top of the skort?

I'm rocking this for sure!
