Step 1: Deconstruct

You will need a shirt, old purse, good scissors, embroidery needle, thick thread, sewing machine, thimble, pins.

Cut out the section you would like to make a face from.

Make sure to cut off any foam, cardboard, or sticky substance from the purse before you sew.
(Use thicker thread in your sewing machine.)

Position onto the shirt, pin, and sew.

Step 2: Attach Extras

For this shirt, I hand-sewed the clip-on star and key ring for eyes.

Step 3: You're Done!

Now just pop your credit card, drivers license, and cash in the pocket and get going!
