So I had a little girls skirt. I have 4 little girls. Why did I take a perfectly cute jean skirt and turn it into a purse? Simple. It was a hand me down from a friend and it didn't fit any of them. They are little toothpick children, I swear I feed them but they just don't get any chub on them. So I thought I would make a purse out of it. All I did was sew up the bottom, cut up some old jeans into three strips then braid them for the handle. It has a zippered lining as well. My 7 year old LOVES it. Her words were "They should have made this into a bag, not a skirt!" I guess it has found it's true purpose!
