Pant Leg Purse

Make this purse from recycled pant or shirt sleeve!

Pant Leg Purse

What you need

End of a shirt sleeve, or end of a pair of pants.
Needle and thread.


Cut the sleeve/leg to the depth you want your bag to be, then turn it inside-out so that you can sew the bottom of the tube-shape.

Sew the bottom of the tube so that the hem is at the top of the bag (to strengthen the edge of the bag).

Turn the bag right-side-out, and sew on a handle (you can use fabric or belting material).

A clasp is optional to close your bag.

Then just sew on decorations of your choice and you’re done!

  4. The Bean Patch says:

    I make these a lot, and put on Iron on appliques and all kinds of extra’s. You don’t have to use denim either, you can use any fabric! And old mens ties make great handles too!
