My original creation using the old ARMY bdu's.  This purse is made out of the leg pocket and then is lined with black cotton fabric.  However, I can use almost every piece of the BDU for purses.  I use the bottom of the leg for wine bags or small girl purses.  I use the pockets on the front of the top for purses for young/tween girls.

Very cute!  I make purses out of BDUs as well (mine is posted on here somewhere...).  You must be military or a military spouse?  You're right, BDUs are great material for purses - with all the pockets and gadgets on them.  The leg pocket was going to be my next project, so its nice to see a visual of the finished project.  You did a nice job!

oh how awesome.  My hubby is an airforce man and he has plenty of these he don't wear anymore, he's got some desert camo too!  Can't wait to try my hand at one of these.  Thanks for sharing!

Another cool one  is to cut off the bottom of the leg and either make a wine bottle bag or a little girls purse with pink or purple eyelash trim...
