Carton Coin Purse

I got this idea from cut out and keep. But I had a smaller carton than they used, so I pretty much had to figure it out on my own, since their measurements wouldn't work.

There are so many different ways of making these things all over the internet. I will probably be making the future ones in completely different ways each. That way I can decide which ways work best.

I, also, used the scraps to make a business card holder that I've sewntogether with my sewing machine! I haven't put the velcro on it, yet.

Could you really expect me to turn down doing a project like this when I have this kind of carton in my grasps!?! LOL

Not sure if this counts for WR...

Ok, so this refashion isn't clothing, and wasn't before, but it is an accessory so I'm not sure if it counts.
My MIL buys local rice in cloth bags. When I asked what she does with the bags after they are empty, she said she throws them away! (WHAT!?!) So, needless to say, the next few bags became MINE!
When you hear bag turned into another bag, it doesn't sound like much of a transformation. But I think it turned out kinda cool. The pictures don't do it any justice tho.
Rice bags
They even have a recipe and the history story on them! No lining, but it is canvas fabric so it can handle it. the gold for the handle and on the top was scraps. I barely had enough. Hence the one handle. However, I did attach the handle so it laps over from one side to the other.....well enough support.
