Purse


I made this purse out of a old - a really old Custo Barcelona shirt. I think it was way way back when he first started making t-shirts. I've been looking at the shirt for awhile thinking I would make it into a pillow but I decided on the purse. I also lined the inside with a vintage black and white fabric. My sewing isn't the greatest - its a bit uneven, but hey I made something out of a t-shirt I knew I would never wear again.

Next time - the fabric will defintely change. I need to use a heavier fabric (like a tweed) so the purse maintains it shape a bit better. I need to change the handles and double check the measurements.

I doubt now that I will actually use this purse - maybe I'll make it into a belt.
