Because this was corduroy and was already pretty thick, I didn't put any interfacing in it. I also wanted it to be kind of floppy, so that worked out.

Usually, though for a little more structured bag, I would use some sort of interfacing.

are u putting anything in between those fabrics? like fusible stuff? your so thrifty!

Saw your msg but completely forgot to reply once I went to your site.

About the legs: I haven't done anything with them yet. Just added them to my Pikes Peak of a fabric stash (somehow it went from a molehill to a mountain in less than a year). I could either use the "tube" aspect of it to make mini-totes, or I could take them apart and patch them together with another weighty fabric to make a larger piece of material to do something with.

About the lining: I used a thrifted pillowcase.

I used a complementary material (the pink paisley) for the inside of the pocket and the underside of the handles.

Comment back to ya from my blog.

Thanks for your comment. I love your blog and look forward to reading it and seeing your projects.

I have two little girls, I need to figure out how to taper those legs in more.

I left u a message on the cinc board, but Ill ask here. Did u do anything with the pant legs that u cut to make that purse? What about the inner material what did u use?

You are much better at sewing than I am. The purse is darling.

Great job - I love it!
I wish I had the skills/talent to create something like that!
