pup purse

When my gramma was a young mommy, she sewed new clothes from old clothes as a necessity.  Now, it’s a craft with a hip name:  repurposing.

The bell bottom legs from jeans make great little party purses.  Find a sweet liner fabric, create an applique, & voila! 


  • combine different textures:  corduroy, ultra suede, cotton, prints, shiny buttons, ribbons, variegated thread, ric rac
  • use varying stitches:  outline some parts with blanket stitch, zig zag or straight stitch
  • an iron-on glue works best for attaching pieces prior to sewing
  • inject more cute with iron-on letters or embellishments
