Jeans Bag

I made this years ago but don't think I ever showed it here. I was getting ready to send it on to the thrift store and showed my DGD who is now using it for a book bag.

I left in the zippers, just cut around them, left in the pockets and cut around them....they can be used for hide away places or storage. It's waaaay crude, but I like it. The handles are from the bibbies...note them hooked to the zippered pocket and I put some lace around the other zippered area. I just put the pieces on one of those big bandana handerchiefs and left raw edges. It was fun to make.

RE: Jeans Bag

Looks like something my DGD's would love.
The zipper idea is great.
Actually I would love one too!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
You are always so creative Ms. Sharon!

RE: Jeans Bag

Thanks, Rosa. It was fun to do and I wouldn't mind doing another one if I could find some neat jeans with zippers, pockets etc. Using the bibbie straps helped for the handles, too. I'm so lazy!


RE: Jeans Bag

Check your local Goodwill! You can get all the jeans you want for just a few dollars and the money you spend will go towards helping people find jobs. It's a win-win!


RE: Jeans Bag

Thanks, Kate, I'm going to have to check them out this week. I like the carpenter jeans because of all the little hidey places!
