Just to get it out of the way, this is all you get from the slumber party!
Now that's out of the way!
The next morning, I shot up out of bed with the crafting bug! I had a pair of brown, linen pants in a bag of stuff I intended to donate. I pulled those babies out and headed to the sewing machine.
The bottom leg of a pair of pants could be a tote bag.
The bottom of 2 legs could be a TWO POCKET bag!
Make sure everything is inside out before sewing.
I hemmed the edges of the top and the flap.
I sewed together the bottom and sides. Turned it all right-side out, and added a button hole and button. Now all I need is a strap. Rock. On.
*Note: I didn't pay attention to where my flap was when I sewed everything together, so now only one pocket is covered. Also note: I had not thought about the pocket that would be formed between the two pants legs when I sewed them together. I was amazed by the magic of my sewing machine when I ended up with three pockets.
