    Some of the jeans bags I have been making

    I have been having a blast making jeans purses/totes from our new Goodwill store that just opened. They have such a Hugh selection, and I found over a dozen pairs, many with great embroidery and gem details, and look brand new! Most were $6.99-$7.99 each! I am selling them for $35.00 at a craft fair next month, along with lots of other purses and totes of various patterns. Most have inside pockets, some made from the matching embroidery details on the legs I used for pockets. Most have fusible interfacing on the lining for strength and body. All have key clips and matching tissue packet covers, too.

    Wish you luck, too! I don't have any advice, as this is my first, too!! I have nearly 60 purses finished, along with 50 tissue covers and a few other bits and pieces, and most of my purses are all priced at $35.00 for the jeans bags, and $45.00 for most of the others. I'm a bit nervous, as I have a lot invested in these and really need to sell them to justify the expense, plus, what will I do with all of them of they do not sell???

    All your purses look very well made, the stitching looks perfect! Your choice of fabrics is right on; beautiful, and tastefull. So don't be nervous, you did a beautiful job on them!

    Thanks everyone! Wish you all cold come on the day to give me moral support!! LOL DH is helping me set up, hope I can talk him into staying for a while so I can go off and see what else is there and hopefully, do some Xmas shopping myself!! If I do ok with this one, there is another, even larger one, on Dec 1-3 that I might sign up for. and with 60 purses, bags and totes so far ready, I am sure I will have some left over, plus have a couple of weeks to make more, once I see what people like.

    What you have left over after the craft shows, put them on ebay for Christmas. I think they would sell there too.
    Good luck.

    Good luck.
    Also "etsy.com" is another site for selling crafts.
    In fact, check out "eggs etcetera" on etsy.com -- my sister raises ostriches, emus and rhea birds, so the beautiful eggs on there are her own freehand artwork in addition to having raised the egg-producing huge birds.

    A other jeans bag just completed

    This shows front and back. I try to find jeans that already have decoration, but this one I added a little pink floral patch on the front. This was a pair of girls jeans (not women's), so the size isn't so big. I love the butterfly fabric I used for the tie, strap lining, and inside lining. On to the next one!!Name:  image.jpg

    I have tons of left over pieces, I think I will make a denim patchwork quilt. Someone recently posted one, and I loved it. I can get both straps from one leg but still with left overs. Sometimes I find jeans shorts or a skirt I like, so I have to make straps from another pair as close to the color as I can. I have a pile of at least 25 pairs left on my closet floor! After I cut off the thick seams in the legs and use what I need for straps and, sometimes an inside pocket, I keep all the leftovers in a large bag in case I need a bit. Nothing goes in the bin!!
