If you’re anything like me, you wear your favorite pair of jeans until they are on their last legs… quite literally. But what do you do once it’s time to admit defeat? There are a lot of cool ways that you can repurpose old jeans, like turning them into a pair of shorts or a cute apron, for example, and the best part is, you’ll still have some material left over to make an adorable little denim bag or purse for any little girl in your life, whether she’s a daughter, a goddaughter, a sister or a niece.
Tutorial by Innova Crafts.
You will need:
- Pair of jeans
- Sewing thread
Snip off the bottom part of the leg – where you cut all depends on how deep you want your bag to be. Then flip the piece of material inside-out and sew the cut part closed. Since you want the bag to have a rounded base so that it can stand upright on its own, you’ll need to sew the two inside corners. When that’s done, flip it the right way, and that’s really all there is to it! If you’re making this with your daughter, then this is the part where you can hand it over to her to decorate however she likes.
These can be used for storage in her room, or you can simply sew on a strap from either the same pair of jeans or a different piece of fabric so that she gets a cute little purse.
