Let's begin a series of Upcycling projects using a used military shirt. First stop - a cross body purse.
My friend (the one who gave me her used uniforms) likes cross body purses, and i wanted to preserve all her military patches, so i decided to make a purse for her with all the patches.
The finished product
Let's see how I made it
the shirt before
cut out the front pieces
sew the bottom, sides together
i kept the buttons and button holes as one of the sides
sewed the loops to the sides for the strap
sewed zipper and lining to the outer fabric
i used a belt for one of my jackets as the strap
