Anything can come from a pile of scrap fabric. This is one of my favorite creations. I didn't use a pattern but I did use one of my purses as a guide.
The straps are made from braided strips of denim.
The lining is made from part of an old ninja costume that we found in a thrift store. One side as a zipper pocket, the other has a cellphone/Mp3 player pocket.
The outer fabric is left over from a dress I made. Plus to add a but of fun, I added iron-on letters to spell my sister's nick name (the purse was for her).
Ta-dah!!! A master piece!!
