My husband wears through khakis pretty quickly, so I had several pairs laying around that were too worn to donate, but not garbage material. He does not do cutoff shorts, so my friend Al helped me turn a pair into a purse. I'm totally digging on the buffalo fabric for the liner. I've already had a few people ask me to make one for them. I did end up cutting the bow off and just leaving it knotted - the bow was a little much, but don't you just love the peacock ribbon? 99 cents at Hobby Lobby last year. Anyway, I'm a purse freak, so this was just up my alley.
