My friends had a clothes swap and I got this pretty a-line skirt. It was too small for me, but I was in love with the embroidered flower. So, I decided to make it into a simple tote bag.

Step 1: Trim the skirt.

I trimmed off the bottom and top of the skirt using a ruler with guide marks and a rotary cutter.

Thought I recognized that Leia hat from Etsy! Between that place and here, my butt only leaves the computer chair when I just have to stop clicking for ideas and craft! Great idea!

Looks great! If you'll be using it as a purse/tote I'd probably consider adding a lining as well; finding a lined skirt would make it dead easy.
