    Just helped a friend make one this weekend. Had a blast "blinging it up." She also uses the legs to make wine bottle covers.

    So glad I decided to check in today. I have a few pairs of jeans I have "outgrown" and just when they are at their best, soft. They have a few worn spots, but some clever embellishments will take care of that. Ideal for carrying my guild supplies. Thanks for the idea.

    I used to make these all the time when I was a young girl, I remember my favorite one and the lineing that was in it was froms a "sun suit" mom made my little sister. I put velcro across the top and remember getting in trouble in class cause it made too much noise . I must not of learned my lesson cause I also made a huge ripping sound in church with that bag lol.

    Oh thank you for showing that! It's so cute! My friend gave me all her dad's jeans after he passed away and I keep thinking I wanted to do something like this for his granddaughters. Now that I've seen this I will do it for sure.
    I thank you and my friend does too.

    I used a bag like that for years, I sewed a zipper into the top of my bag.

    Very cute. I've got some jeans that would work very well for something like this. Thanks for sharing.

    I'm so glad I checked in while this was on the front page--just this past weekend, my husband tried to throw away a pair of his old jeans! Can you imagine?! I rescued them, of course, and he asked why in the world I would want those old, worn jeans. Now I can show him why..lol! Love the bag; thanks for the idea. ~ Dawn ~
