Recycled Girls Skort and Wool Sweater Purse

I found these cute girl's skorts at the thrift store. I cut the shorts out of the inside, hand stitched the bottom with a coordinating embroidery floss.


Then I used the sleeve of a wool sweater from another project for the purse straps. I cut the sleeve into eight one inch wide by 6 inch long strips.

I braided two sets of three to use as the purse straps. I hand stitched them to the inside at the top of the skorts. I used the other two strips to make a belt.
