I decided to take on the challenge to make something for under $5. This came in WAY under, and was easy to do.
My mom and I went to DI yesterday, and I got these two pillow cases for $1 total - for both.
I didn't know what I was going to do with them at first. I thought about making a skirt, but as I sat the fabric there, it looked like it would be the perfect layered vintage looking purse.
I was left with one short and one long piece of plain pillowcase. I cut the long piece in half, and used to make an inside and outside part of the body of the purse.
This is how I made the straps. I sewed across the top of the strap, so I could have an easier time turning it right side out.
I sewed the lace pieces together at the top, and set the two body pieces together, with the raw edges facing each other.
Then I tucked the top of the lace pieces (shell) in between the body pieces at the top.
I knotted the straps for extra interest, and tucked the straps into the sides and pinned everything in place. Then I sewed around the top.
It was really easy, and only cost me $1!
