The Hot Leather Pants

Hello Readers. If there is one thing I didn't need it was leather pants. They were made of really soft beautiful leather and I thought I could make something else from the them.

Here are the black leather pants. They didn't look good on me and they were SO hot. I could have hiked to the North Pole in these pants. I don't know how anyone could wear these pants and not have heat stroke. I was starting to sweat and the pants were going to stick to my legs. 

I cut the bottom of the legs off and saved the top of the pants for later. I wanted to make something from the legs of the pants.

I made the ends off the pants into 2 different sized pockets by stitching the cut edge shut. Trust me, I had a reason. I also hemmed the cut off pants into shorts but I don't know when or where I will ever wear them.
 Do you have any fashion advice for leather shorts? Leave it in the comments.

I connected the two pockets I made of the pant legs. The hem of the pants made the top openings of my new purse. I added some fabric inside each pant leg/pocket.

I added some old black leather cord I had as a strap. And I found this flower pin stashed away in a drawer.

It was a pin, so I just pinned it on the purse. No sewing required.

It wasn't real leather but it looked good with the leather from the pants. It also helped weigh down the taller back pocket when I folded it down over the shorter front pocket to close the whole purse.

It is a great little purse. It is just big enough for my summertime essentials.

Thanks for reading along, now go make something fun for yourself.
 ***Year End update-This is a great little bag when I only want to carry a few things. I still don't know what to think about the shorts.

Haha, I thought of that Friends scene as soon as you said they were hot. So funny. :-D Genius idea to make a purse out of those pants, by the way!

Thanks so much or the comment Margarete. As soon as I put on the pants I was overheated and felt like I was going to be trapped in that scene.
