After making the first handbag using the cargo shorts and an old military shirt, I still had fabric leftover, so i decided to make another one.
This time, since fabric was very limited, i used whatever leftover fabric i could gather from the cargo shorts and the military shirt to make the strap. I actually used the collar of the military shirt to make one side of the strap, and used the cargo shorts to make the other side of the strap.
front of the bag, i only put pockets on the front, nothing at the back. the opening/zipper area was made from the sleeves of the military shirt, so the buttons are actually functional (see picture #3)
lining was a very lightweight lining in brown with one pocket
this is how the bag actually looks after buttoning the sides of the bag
