I am so excited to post this tutorial I cant even describe the rush. I have been wanting to do this for so long!! YAY!!!
If you stick around here long enough it will soon become apparent that I LOVE denim and corduroy. In my closet there is a stack of jeans...jeans with holes, jeans with stains, jeans my hubby wanted to save for "work pants" but then outgrew...hehehe...nothing is better for me than chopping up a pair of pants to make something new!
On rare occassions I leave my house without a bag that is loaded with bandaids, extra underpants and sippy cups...So here I present an easy shoulder bag tutorial made from a pair of hubby's jeans!
You will need...
A pair of old jeans
some coordinating fabric reminants
Wonder Under (fusable webbing)
General sewing supplies
Get started by cutting the bottom off of one of the legs of your pants and cut out one of the back pockets. I like to leave 1/4 to 1/2 inch allowance around the pocket. You can cut the pants to the desired length of your bag, dont forget a small allowance for the seam at the bottom.
pin the pocket to the jeans near the hem (the hem will be the top of your completed bag) and sew it down
