I made a purse.. and more...

I wanted a new bag but didn't want to take long making it.. I didn't want to use good fabrics either lol
So I took a pair of old jeans that was soft and thin..
I took a pattern I received from Jane at ProjectsbyJane .I made it a tad bigger as I liked the shape of the clutch . (Sorry Jane I hacked your pattern! lol )
I used fabric scraps received from Sasha at StitchedbySasha.. thank you Sasha!
I used a old purse strap ..
and came up with this..HA.
 Like I said I used old fabric for the case I didn't like the outcome of it.. and wouldn't you know I love this bag!!!Its not even heavy like I thought it would be either.. the strap is adjustable so it can be a shoulder bag or sling bag.

I reused a couple of the pockets too.

I have this much more scraps to get through.. I decided about a week ago I MUST USE THEM .. 

I started off making these...My sister-in-law wanted them. I like the little one hehe.

I ordered more....yes more.. washi tape...this came from HouseofWashi on Etsy.. the dotted piece are little strips ..cute!

hmm what else can I show..
Oh I made home made stain remover !!! and it WORKS! I used about everything to get smashed down jelly out of my carpet.. I found on pinterest this simple solution part hydrogen peroxide, one part baking soda and 2 parts water. Spray it on that nasty stain..( and it was nasty mean too) took a tooth brush at it and poof ... that sucker was gone like a freight train! 
this is good for whitening teeth too.. just a teaspoon of each ingredient with your toothpaste and brush those stains off your choppers! 

I hope everyone state side enjoys their holiday !!! 
Happy birthday America!



  1. Suzee!!!!! Your purse turned out so cute! I love how the pocket ended up on the outside and I love that you added another denim pocket on the inside!!!!! Does this mean I can't send you more scraps anytime soon? hehehehe

  2. Oh Love your super fun bag!! I love the way you used the pockets and the strip of fabric at the top is such a nice look. Your sister in law will be happy you're using your scraps, those little purses are so cute!! That stain remover sounds brilliant!!

  3. Suzee, the bag is lovely! And you should always use nice fabric for the lining. I mean if you're making all that effort to make the bag and all. If you had kept the belt loops, you could insert a piece of fabric as the "belt". And isn't it nice the pocket is already there? Looks like a roomy bag too.


Come on.. don't be shy.. leave a comment.. love to hear from you!
