For the current Friends of Craftster Raffle swap (come join!), I made a purse out of a skirt that I was going to donate.  The requirements were to upcycle something into something else.  I reused the outer skirt, the lining, and the tie.  The only thing I used that was new was the interfacing and thread. Cheesy  No pattern, just cut and went with what was in my head.  


The tie was on the skirt as well, as a belt-like thing and I thought it was perfect to close the purse with.

That's very pretty. I must say the skirt isn't something i would have worn either but the bag I would definitely carry! Great upcycle!

It's fabulous!

In my younger years I totally wore skirts like that.  Smiley

Woo hoo, thank you both!  Smiley  I haven't worn the skirt in AGES and I didn't think I was going to again.  I hope whoever gets it in the swap likes it as much as I do.
