Recycle, Redesign and Rewear!
You will need a pair of old jeans, some fabric for the lining of the purse and a placemat. I purchased some matching table napkins with the placemat from a second hand shop to use in this purse/bag. Cut the legs off several inches below the crotch area. Save the legs to make straps out of later.
This project is one for my students in Fashion Design to try their hand at recycle and redesign. Lots of handwork involved unless you have a sewing machine that will sew really tough, thick fabric. Pattern or design used:
