    Does anyone know if there is a tutorial online somewhere to make a corset into a purse or if it's even possible. I have a couple of them packed away that were really expensive and hate to just toss them out.

    I think it would be much easier than a bra purse. All depends on how the bottom edge is constructed. I would not cut into the boning. Just seam across the bottom, drop in a lining, reinforce the straps and embellish the heck out of it. Good luck!

    I saw one recently while surfing but unfortunately can't find it right now. I believe it was under a breast cancer bra challenge site.

    The ghees.com site suggested starting with an underwire bra.

    Here are some pics

    The design is from The Purple Hat, and I bought it on Secrets of Embroidery
