so i had an old pair of cordoroy pants that i couldnt part with and some really pretty hot pink silkish material that i found on the grass at school, and so i decided to make a change purse out of it all...

First I took the zipper out of the pants, and used that to measure what the length of the purse should be, from there i just free handed the shape of it, traced that on pink fabric and cut all four pieces

then i cut out a heart of the same pink fabric, and cut zig zag lines to make it broken ( i didnt cut all the way down as u can see) and stitched that on with bright green thread, cause pink and green are the best color combo's ever. Then i hand stiched it all together....the zipper was the hardest part, but i made it work out and i love the results....



here's the front of it




and the inside : )

the funny thing is that the zipper has old navy ingraved on it since thats where the pants were from, so now everyone thinks i bought it from there, silly people

I like it
Keep up the good ideas, the shape is unusual and suits the heart.
I am sure you could make lots for xmas gifts and they would be treasured.
