This is an old underwire bra. I got the idea from another site and made my own.

Most of us have a not-quite-right bra or two loitering in our lingerie drawer. Now you can turn that scrap of fabric and lace into a fun purse that's sure to be an attention-getter!

After a bra purse is made, how does it close? Do you get the snap things like a coin purse closes, or do you sew a zipper onto it? Maybe leave it open?

I used velcro.
Thanks so much! I am going to make one tomorrow when my daughter takes a nap! :) I am so excited to try making these! I haven't seen anything like this in my area, such a cute idea! Thanks for replying.
VELCRO WOULD CLOSE IT NICELY
I use the back strap
What if you use a large-cupped bra? Velcro or snaps would bunch them in in an odd way.

Does anyone have easy instructions on making purses from bras?
