This was a big boxy heavily shoulder-padded blazer that was too big on me. My original idea was to cut it down in to a shorter jacket with smaller pockets and no shoulder pads but it just looked weird. So, I did what anyone else would do...I made a purse. I used the lining that was in the jacket as the liner for the purse, but it didn't work in some places. This would explain why there are pictures of only the outside.  Wink It's made from the two bottom corners that come together when you button the blazer. I basically cut them off and sewed them together.  The handle is made from the jacket collar. I had fun making it and it at least looks better as a purse than it did as a jacket.

Exceptionally cool bag!  I would love a messenger style bag like that.  I just may go look for a thrift store blazer to craft into a swanky bag.  Too cool!  You ROCK!
