    A few more jeans bags done

    Ok, here are a few more jeans bags I made. The black butterfly one with the belt is my favorite. Thought I would make one without a tie, and saw this belt and thought I would try it. I love how it came out! The belt is tooled and has silver butterflies and studs all around it. I can't get the third one to post for some reason, so I'll try another post.

    Jeans bag again

    Here is the other that I couldn't get posted. It was a special order for a 10 year old girl who is mad about baseball! I embroidered her name on the straps.

    Not really hard, but there isn't a pattern, so you just measure the lining to what ever size jeans you are using. Sewing around the top to attach the lining and straps is tricky since its so thick. They are addicting! I now have around 15 made so far for a craft fair the end of the month. Amazing how popular they are, especially with teens!!

    That is really a tie I make with fabric matching the lining and under the shoulder straps. Cute, huh?

    Adding the belt was a brilliant idea. That's my favorite.

    Half the fun is shopping for them in the Goodwill! I look for good quality with very little wear, and it's a bonus when there is already embroidery or decorative details on the pockets and especially if there is decoration on one leg. I can use that for the pockets inside! You should see the stack in my closet!! Enough for probably another 15 bags!

    These are wonderful!! I love the one I bought about 20 years ago at a huge street fair in Ventura, California. Mine is made out of green jeans and has a great calico flower material "belt".

    What I love most about it is the story behind it. Teen I bought it from was running the booth for her mother who was on lunch break. She said that my bag was made from her younger sister's jeans. Mom had started doing craft fairs to help with family expenses and now that she had exhausted her daughters' supply of gently used jeans, she had started buying jeans from resale shops because the purses were so popular.

    Nice story! I know how popular they are, especially with teens. I have had tremendous success selling these. Plus, they last forever and are so versatile. Each one is different, too! I have made them from black, brown, and different blue denims so far. I even tried one from a pink pair of just cotton pants. I love putting different fabrics with them for lining and ties. I love the butterfly one I did with a leather belt studded with silver butterflies instead of a fabric tie. I used bright butterfly fabric for strap lining and inside lining and fused butterflies on the outside. They are so much fun to make!
