Linen pleated handbag

Linen pleated handbag, originally uploaded by homebirthmama.

This was the end result. Lonely thrifted pants, made into something usable and beautiful for me!

I love 're-purposing'. Great bag!

Thanks Tilly! It's been a lot of fun to show people my bag and tell them it used to be a pair of pants!

That is a great use of a pair of pants. The colors are beautiful.

I buy those old wide leg pants at the thrift store and make long skirts from them. I wonder if this would be hard to sew up in canvas? I sure could use a bag like this when we have to run from hurricanes. I have a lot of stuff I don't want to put in the suitcase.
