Make an up-cycled coin purse from a men’s button down shirt. These mini wallets are not only super easy to make but they are really handy. They will hold a drivers license, a pool pass, and some cash when you don’t want to bring your entire purse to the beach. This would also be a fun gift for Father’s Day. Well your husband might not be so thrilled once you’ve cut up his favorite button down like I did!
|First you need an old menswear shirt.|
|Cut off the cuff.|
|Fold cuff in half so that the buttonhole side is longer than the side with the button. The longer side should fold over so that the buttonhole and the button line up. Pin in place.
Your mini-coin purse is complete!
