What to do with that collection of old sweatshirts!? Why not make a purses out of them? They make great gifts because they are so personal! This ZIP file/pattern includes five pages of instructions with supplemental illustrations along with a tutorial on sewing a gusset. As with all my patterns, the directions are clear and simple - short and concise sentences. I also provide an overview of the project with some tips to make sewing much easier. I encourage you to read my blog for supplemental help. You might not need it, but it will give you some visuals. Just look for "Sweatshirt Purse" in the label section on the right side of the page. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Some confidence with stretchy fabric.
