I had a pair of jeans that had started to wear out and I thought how can I reuse and recycle them. I had previous made a pair of shorts into a bag ( a brown one) and thought Denim would go with lots more of my stuff so decided to do the same with the jeans. I cut them off and sewed the legs; attached an old silk rope from an old robe to the belt loops for a strap and then tied a piece of string onto another belt loop at the back to put over the front button to help keep it a bit closed. I like how it has turned out and have already had a compliment from a lady who served me in a shop the other day when I was using it.
I love being able to have things that I have created that are useful.
