Bags from old jeans

One day I was just viewing the pictures in Pinterests. I won't tell lie, I'm really addicted to Pinterests. While I was going through some handmade bag pictures I saw a picture of a bag made from old jeans  pant. That very idea struck in my mind. I desperately wanted to sew a bag from old jeans. However, I didn't have old jeans in my closet. For few days I really felt restless, as I couldn't sew a bag. Anyway, days passed I also forgot about that. 



Anyway, few months bak I was thinking about some handmade gifts for my high school friends for an upcoming get together. I wanted used some old dresses, which had no use, and also some fabrics from my stash. I took a good look to all my jeans. Yes, this time I found few of good old jeans which must be discarded from my closet. I was so delighted to take them out from my closet. I felt delighted not for buying new ones, but cutting them to make bags. *smile*



I cut out every inch  of them very carefully, and made a lot of purses. After making the purses, I wanted to make the dream bag, which I saw in Pinterests. However, I didn't have any jeans pants. This time I went to Mr. Man to find out any old jeans. He, didn't want to discard any of them. I took 2 pants, I told him they were more wearable condition. After much persuasion, he agreed to discard them. I was overjoyed. Am I not a crazy person? 


I made that very. After seeing the picture of the bag, two of my friends became so interested , that they requested me to sew that kind of bag for them. I was delighted to sew for them. Here is the pictures of the bags.

  9. Ha, it is so satisfying to make something from 'nothing' or things that aren't being used. Grins, Sandi
