    Great bags! I found some cute jeans the other day and have them set aside to try making a bag. My dh came in later - was unhappy with his belt and threw it in the trash. I grabbed it up to try with the bags. LOL. Your bag with the butterfly belt is lovely. Mine will be plainer as the belt isn't fancy but it's a learning experience. Thanks for sharing your pix.

    Ingenious. Love them but most of all the belted one. It looks store bought to me.

    Those are really cute. I'm glad they are selling. I made some to sell and only sold a couple. My favorite was the one I used a red bandana handkerchief to make the belt (cutting a strip on the diagonal from corner to corner). I tied it in a square knot rather than a bow. Then used the cut off corners to make a piece hanging out of the back pocket. Another one that my daughter claimed immediately was made with cargo camo. pants. I used the big cargo pockets in the legs to make one purse and the top part for another. She took the cargo pockets one.

    Not really a pattern. I saw a tutorial a while back on line on how to cut off the legs, remove the thick inseam and sew the two front legs together r, then the two back legs so you get a skirt. Then even it up and sew the bottom. Just take that part and lay it on your lining and cut it out using the bag as the pattern, but adding a cole inches at the top to fold under. I usually use fusible fleece on my lining to make it a bit more stable. Finish your lining with pockets or however you want, sew up the sides and bottom and insert it in the bag. I make my straps from the legs and line them with fabric matching the lining and insert them between lining and bag and pin carefully the layers together, with the top of the lining folded down between. Sew around the top using a jeans needle and denim or very heavy duty thread. The tutorial was pretty basic, but the main thing I got out of it was how to cut the legs and make the bottom of the bag straight. I also top stitch my straps. Thats it in a nut shell, you just have to play with it and each one you do you'll get better! Tension sewing the top was the biggest problem, so the thread doesn't loop or knot on the lining.

    I used to make those when I was a pre-teen! but mine weren't as nicely finished, and there was a lot more puff paint involved.

    I like the butterfly one best, too.

    Yes, all have linings, with most, I use fusible to make the lining a bit more stable. The lining is the same fabric as the ties and shoulder strap lining. Inside I use either decorative bits from the legs of the jeans or coordinated fabrics for the pockets, sometimes both. They also have sewn in key clips and matching tissue packet covers.
