Take your pair of cargo pants and cut the inseam of each leg of the pants up to the crotch area. Cut the bag exterior pieces: front flap (this is where the cargo pocket comes in handy - cool pockets you don't have to sew!)

Cut the same size pieces from the lining material. Make the strap by placing the long pieces right sides together, sew down each side. Now make the front flap. Assembling the lining: Take gusset pieces (2 sides and a bottom) and sew the short ends together. Lay your connected gusset pieces right sides together on top of the front of the bag piece, pin, sew.

Slips + Teddy Bears + Curtains = Fur Halter Top & Skirt. Hey. I decided to challange myself with this one by using stuffed animals for the main part of my outfit. I bought THREE large stuffed animals a old frilly curtain and a couple old cheap slips I didn't use one of the slips or the stuffed doggy, but I did use all three bears, and they didnt offer me as much fur as I though they would.Here is a picture of the unstuffing process (the messiesy thing I have ever done) after I destuffed them all I un seamed all the seams, which was fun, lots of ripping and hand hurting fun.

May 11th, 2011 Email no recommendations Here is another easy way to make harem pants out of existing trousers.

I already had these workout pants in my wardrobe. All I did was make a fold to decrease the volume at the hem on the outer leg side of the trousers. You should be able to see how I made the fold in the photo. Next I put the trousers on to make sure my feet could fit through. I hand sewed buttons to hold the fold in place and that was it!

Well, I don't care if I look like a picnic basket, so I decided to turn it into a tank top for myself! It was actually really easy to do... let me try once again to tell you how I used a sewing machine... eh.... First things first, I chopped the sleeves off. Then I slipped the shirt on and pinned in the sides so that it fit. I took off the shirt, flipped it inside out and sewed up the sides where my pins were, trimmed off the excess, flipped it rightside out again, and tried it on to make sure it fit. Then I pinned the armholes the way I wanted them... carefully......and sewed them. That's it!
