Upcycled Military Uniform Purse

After making a few items out of the old military uniforms, i still have quite a few of shirts and pants left, so I wanted to try my hands at making purses.  

i used a pair of my husband's Abercrombie and Fitch cargo shorts to make the opening of the bag.  Used the pockets on each side of the bag

Lining has one pocket from the military uniform

Using the buttons and button hole section of the military shirt to make the strap. Therefore, the strap can be shortened or lengthened to make the purse a cross body bag or a shoulder bag!

Long Strap

Short Strap

The A&F cargo shorts made into the bag opening with the recessed zipper.
