Introduction: Furry Purse

Picture of Furry Purse

I bought these leg warmers online for my daughter's booties. But she was so disappointed when only ONE arrived! Yes, the pair was incomplete. I promised her we will make something amazing with it.

So I transformed it into a purse. Well actually she did, under my supervision. Remember I made this sewing cards for her to learn how to sew? Well, this was her first real sewing project. Not bad for her first one, right?

This purse is perfect for little seamstress who want to make something amazing in less than an hour, with beginners' sewing skills but with a great results. No more lame sacks.

Step 1: Gather Your Materials

Black fabric

Fabric glue

Black thread

Needle

A chain

A leg warmer

An embellishment (I had this cute bow that was part of an old boot)

Scissors

Step 2: Cut

Cut a long rectangle of black fabric. When you fold it at half, it should measure a little bit less than the leg warmer.

Step 3: Glue

Now stick three sides of the rectangle with fabric glue. Work in 2in sections, and spread the glue with your finger to have a thin layer. Then put the two sides together and press for few seconds until it sticks, then repeat until you've completed the three sides. I know that this step doesn't involve sewing, but we have to teach to be practical too, right? And because this is the part that will hold her things, I didn't wanted to take the chance to have holes in it. But don't worry, in the next steps there's real sewing. You will notice in the pictures that my black fabric has a hem, it's only because i recycled this fabric from another project.

Step 4: Sew
