When I was a little girl, my mom used to make bags for us out of old jeans. When she came to visit, she saw all of the jeans that my kids could no longer wear and came up with the brilliant idea of turning a few of them them into purses. So, rather than a big bag made from adult sized jeans, she made little purses out of kid sized jeans. My daughter helped out and here are a few of the purses that they made!
I know that this next purse is not made from jeans, but my mom made this super cute purse from a pair of my daughter’s old shorts! It turned out SOOOOO cute! I am convinced that it could be sold in a store somewhere!!!
Anyhow, to make the purses, all she did was cut the jeans off in the crotch area and stitch the bottom closed. Use the leg of the jeans/shorts to cut a handle for the purse and stitch it on. You can add a closure or velcro to the top if you want the purse to close. You can jazz up the bag a bit by adding ribbon in the belt loops!
