This purse was made using brown fabric from a sheet I got last year from a friend to make a palm tree costume for my son. I also cut up two t-shirts & ribbon. I had a design in my head for the shape, cut out paper and then cut out the sheet fabric. Then cut the two t-shirts into strips. Two of the long strips were gathered to create a ruffled effect and sewn to the outside of the purse front, then ribbon at the top of the patterned t-shirt fabric. First I was going to attach some wooden recycled purse handles but ended up making loops for straps to go through and used the remainder of the 3 fabrics & braided them through to become two straps/handles for the purse. It is lined with the same brown sheet fabric as well.
