What do you do with your Husbands worn out Pendleton shirt? you make a purse..yep, I made a purse with Gary's old worn out Pendleton for our daughter Bernadette. I salvaged the good material and reused the pockets.
I purchased the 100% dark gray fabric to make the outside and straps and added some braided trim.
Embroidered our daughters Bernadette's initials on the pocket flap.
I was able to reclaim enough pendelton fabric to line the purse and re-use a pocket for the inside as well.
And there you have it.. A recycled shirt made into a purse. I made up my own purse pattern for this design.
I love being able to reuse and re-purpose something old into something new again. It just makes me feel good. As the saying goes "Waste not, Want not!".
Have a sweet week!
