Who hasn't made one of these yet?
Using Threadbanger's tutorial on how to make a jean purse (http://www.threadbanger.com/episode/THR_20070914
), I figured that since I recently got a few trash bags full of clothes from someone my dad worked with (I got rid of all the stuff that didn't fit me long before I started crafting.. darn it), I'd take a pair of jeans that didn't fit me and turn it into a messenger bag (I love them so..).
I wish I took before pictures.. crud
Oh well. Here's the end result
The big pocket:
And the good thing about making a jean purse? It already comes with pockets!
I really like the stitching on the strap, and I am in love with the purple fabric. It has writing on it, but I have no idea what it says ^^;;
I put iron-ons to make it more "customized," but it's.. eh.
I even wanted to put a "hidden pocket" behind the snaps, but I made the mistake of telling my dad that, and his exact reaction was "Ahhhhh, no."
I'm pretty happy with it though, even if it is a little small.
Wow. Long post. Sorry 'bout that, but thanks for looking!
