Booty Bag


I always wanted to try and make a booty bag.
So last weekend I asked my niece for a pair of jeans and a T Shirt she no longer needed and said I was going to make her a cute bag.
After a couple hours with the sewing machine and hand stitching the liner to the inside of the bag as well as an old belt she had - this is the results!

I cut the jeans down to above the crotch area. Sewed across the bottom and did the corner stitching inside to square off the bottom.
Then I cut the bottom of the knit shirt she gave me and did the same thing sewed the bottom and then squared off the corners

I cut the belt into three pieces - so I could preserve the belting mechanism so she could close the purse. I hand stitched that to the sides of the purse. Took the longer portion left over piece and hand stitched that to the seams for a handle/shoulder strap.

Lastly to hide all the hand stitching I hand stitched the shirt lining in.

This is a quick pic as i couldn't wait to give it to her yesterday. Oh I forgot - I also made two pockets inside as we all know us girls love pockets!
