    very nice job, and I know they are very heavy duty and won't rip.
    they make nice gifts also.

    Great job! They would make great last minute gifts too! I wonder how a little embroidery work would look?

    Wow, you've been busy! Does the one on the lower left have a scalloped edge? Great bags.

    Love the jeans bags. Would be a good project to do with the grandkids and their jeans.

    Great idea! I have been collecting jeans for a couple of quilts, and you've inspired me to make bags too! Your work is really nice.
