How to Make Hoodie Purses

Save

Need a big bag to store your stuff on the go? If you have a cute hoodie that you're willing to sacrifice, you can have a new shoulder bag in just a few minutes.
Because it's roomy and sweatshirt soft, it makes a great computer carrying case. But don't skimp on the stitching at the bottom of the bag; you want your bag to be stunning and sturdy.

Things You'll Need

  • Long-sleeve hoodie
  • Sewing machine or needle
  • Thread
  • Thread your sewing machine, or thread your sewing needle.

  • Turn your hoodie inside out.

  • If you want a less edgy look to your bag, cut off the zipper.

  • Line up the edges at the bottom of your hoodie. This will form the bottom of your bag. Sew the bottom edges closed.

  • If you have cut off the zipper, sew the seams closed where the zipper used to be. Otherwise, zip it up.

  • Turn the hoodie right side out again.

  • Whether or not you used a sewing machine to close the bottom and seams, you should hand-sew the top of the sleeves together to form the bag's strap.

  • Fold the hood over to form the top flap of the bag. If you want the flap to close more securely, you can iron or sew a Velcro strip to the top of the hood.

  • For a sleeker look to the top flap, cut off the top part of the hood (the part that fits over your head), leaving just the neck. Sew the edge of the flap where you cut.
