While my sister and her family were visiting, my niece wanted to make something. She decided to make a denim purse. I had tons of jeans for my Americana/Denim Quilt so I let her go through them. She chose size 5 Gap Kids jeans.
She cut them straight across at the crotch.
She pinned it.
And cut a strip from the leg as a handle/shoulder strap.
She hand stitched the strap in place and it's the cutest purse ever! There are the front and back pockets to put things in, and the jeans had an adjustable waist so she can cinch the top in if she wants!
I didn't get an after pic, but it looks like the second pic with a strap. I'll see if she can take a pic and I'll put it on later.
What do you do with old jeans?
Lots o' love,
