here is my second skirt purse.. mmh i love em.. this one is by far the best..my detail pics got deleted so ill have to take em again with an action shot.. ill edit later tonight! its just a girls skirt with a tee shirt for the lining and some of my leftover pink polka dot fabric for the inside pockets... its so roomy i love it.. it was pretty easy to make too...and i leave the bottom open so you get the skirt feel. The strap is my old mcdonalds work belt hehehe.( my fave!)

I love making skirts into bags--my current bag was made from a denim skort.  Yours is really cute!

Just treat me no differently than you would the Tarantula Queen.

I have never seen anything like this! I have been looking at thrift stores and shops for just the right purse to take with me on a trip to down town San Francisco for my brother-in-law's wedding. Maybe I will try to make one like this. I think I have a skirt packed away I could use. I like the way you did the lining so that the skirt could stay flow-y.
If you want to, I'd love to have you submit it for my Mothers Day gift idea contest. The details are on the Mothers Day page of my site.
...My wheels are turning and I'm trying to imagine all the different kinds of skirts at the thrift store you could do this with - leather anyone?
