UpCycled Sweatshirt...Purse



Yesterday I wrote about a purse I saw on Pinterest - it was for sale on Amazon - and made from sweatshirt fabric. I was inspired to make my own using an old Penn State Alumni Sweatshirt.


It took some work to get the measurements where I wanted them to be, but here it is!

I made some changes based on the feedback about the original purse - mainly that it was a bit too thin.









The inside is really basic - just one pocket. The next one I make will have an exterior zippered pocket and a toggle for the drawstring. Yeah, not that efficient to tie, untie, tie, untie. There is a magnetic closure at the top.





For more information on this purse and some tutorials, please click on the "Sweatshirt Purse" in the label section to the right!
