Deconstruction Time – sorry I don’t have a picture of the pants whole
I took the seams out of the inside leg and crotch of the pants, removed the cuffs and took out the pockets. It’s a great activity for a rainy afternoon when you’re watching TV since it is slow going, but can be done in an hour or two. I used each leg for the front and back body of the bag and the pockets for the gussets. The cuff was fashioned into tabs. The lining was some gold satin I had acquired more than 4 years ago from a wash sample. The handles and flower are sale pieces from Joann’s.
My final verdict: Love it! Total cost of bag: $4.00 (fabric: free since they were well-worn as pants; lining: $.25; handles: $2.25; flower: $1.50.
