Welcome to the Quilting Board!
Jill, you and your bags are my inspiration. I have been making bags (jeans purses) lately and haunting the local thrift shop on 99 cent day for jeans. Today I will look for belts too and be a little more selective since I have a pile of jeans already. I am trying to use my stash but always need more interfacing or something. One of these days this obsession will subside and I will get back to quilting! Thanks for your ideas and keep posting. I also did some sort of basic book or shopping bags from patchwork denim. They were fun and much faster to put together even with a lining.
