So I have been working on this project for almost a week now, first I thought it needed straps (that's why it almost didn't happen, but I won't go into it)... Here's how it decided to turn out...
I've had these pants since I was 8 or 9. I thought they were the COOLEST thing! I used to drive my Dad (my Mom liked them) crazy wearing them everywhere! (I mean everywhere!) Those pants held a special memory that will be with me forever. But sadly they didn't fit and were stuffed into my refashion box where they were hiding until I happened to spy!
So for this tutorial you could add straps, but as I said before they didn't wish to be on my bag...
Let's begin shall we??
Here's what you need:
1 pair of pants (jeans, cotton...etc.)
Sew on Snaps
Scissors or rotary cutter and mat
Gather all your supplies! Lay your pants out flat and cut an even line directly above the crotch. Edited in later~~Be sure to save you pant bottoms! Waste not want not! wink!
Turn your pants wrong side out and sew a 1/2" seam (I sewed my twice for support) all along to bottom edge.
You clutch is almost ready!!! Now sew on a snap to keep it closed AND you now have a one of a kind clutch!
My sister is modeling the bag for me. I think it goes great with her shirt! ;)
I was thinking of all the different types of pants/jeans you could use! Like a high waisted jean pant (the top would fold over), or even some rad colored pants (like mine)!
