Old Jeans Turned Into Bag

Added Jul 22, 2008

I made this bag lots of years ago, I think that maybe I was 12 or 13. I read a how to in a magazine to turn your old jeans into a bag. I got some help from my mum, she suggested to make a lining with compartiments.
I used this bag a lot and I was happy to find it again lately!

Material Notes

Old jeans, some fun fabric for lining and a zipper





The magazine (I think it was Taptoe, a Dutch children’s magazine), my mum, me

    Hey, I’m sorry, I don’t have a pattern for my bag! Just cut the pipes off from an old pair of jeans right under the crotch, turn the jeans inside out, and close the pipes by sewing at the level of the crotch. Then turn it back with the right side out and you have the beginning of your bag! Invent a nice way to line it, use a zipper or something else to close it and use the pipes to make a strap! Enjoy :)
