There are times I don't need or want to carry a large purse with me when I go out. I have designed this adorable purse so I can grab my wallet, keys, and other small items that I may need for my trip. The strap can be worn over the shoulder or tied in a knot for hand carrying. It can easily be converted into a fanny pack. Lets get started and I will show you how quick and easy it is to make!
Step 1: Supplies
1 Neck tie.
1 Sleeve from a lined blazer or suit jacket.
1 Matching button.
Hook and eye, snaps, or Velcro for flap closure if you don't make a button hole.
Fuse-able inter-facing to use inside the neck- tie as a stabilizer.
Step 2: Tools
Sewing machine or can be stitched by hand.
Pen or pencil.
Step 3: The Necktie And Fuse-able Interfacing
In the next few steps we are taking apart the necktie and putting it back together. The reason we are doing this is because the necktie needs heavier interfacing to stabilize the fabric. We will also be cutting off the widest part of the necktie for the flap and will be using the remaining part of the necktie for the purse straps. I hope by explaining this; it will make the instructions easier to understand.
