Use it again…..and again….
Here is an idea for a quick sewing project.
I used the bottom and one back pocket of the jeans.
Make sure you cut the pocket out with the fabric it has been sewn on.
Turn the bottom piece inside out and sew the bottom of your bag with a normal straight stitch. (the sides and top has already being done by your jeans manufacturer….)
Sew it onto the bag.
Measure the ribbon and attach it to your bag at the back.
Add some detail – or something you love……
Sew a big button on the front to close the denim bag with your ribbon.
Take some of the left over pieces from the leg of the jeans and cut into a long strip for the shoulder band.
In my case I had to join it – (my legs are not very long……..)
Sew the ribbon on top of the shoulder band and fray the sides to match it with the pocket on the front of the denim bag.
Join the shoulder band with the denim bag.
Try some different crochet flowers on your denim bag to match all your outfits….
Fill your DIY handbag from old jeans with your personal goodies
So you have used only one leg……..
