Description

I had bought a men’s dress shirt that had an interesting pattern from Salvation Army for the material, but I had no idea what to use it for. It hung out in my closet for a while until I decided to use the cloth to make a cute purse! I just sorta made it up on my own.

Material Notes

If you use a men’s dress shirt like I did, you don’t have to make an actual shoulder strap. The material of the shirt shouldn’t matter if you line it with something thick like felt.

    What a nice purse! I think the lace is a lovely idea :-))

      Thank you! The only problem with the lace sewn to the bottom of the flap is that it gets caught on the velcro I decided to use to secure the flap with, so now it along with the ribbon is getting all frayed and worn. :/
