I found several of these Tshirt's at Wal-Mart after halloween for $3.00 unfortunately, they were in the juniors sizes, and there is NO way that I could have worn one.  So, I decided that I would turn them into purses for myself and a few other 80's crazed friends.  The purse shape is a simple basic rectangle, although I think that I may make a jordy with one of the other shirts.  I used leftover fabric from one of the sleeves for the strap.

Since I don't have a tailor's dummy, my daughter did the honors for me.  The front of the shirt with the Ghostbusters logo.


The back of the shirt "I ain't afraid of no ghost"


Font of the purse.  There is red felt around the top, but on the second one I made I used a scrap of red fabric because the felt gets dirty easy and gets little pills and balls all over it.


Back of the purse.  It looks a little worn because I carried it everywhere right after I finished it.  Roll Eyes

If I had any of the shirts left I would make another -- but they were a big hit so I am out of shirts for now -- although my sister is on the lookout for more  Grin

She's a total ham.  Everytime I start to take pictures of something that I've made she wants to help me so she can be in the shot.  Roll Eyes
