3  more recycled jeans to purses in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by swapshop on: May 24, 2011 11:32:51 AM

my latest bag from the bits left over from jeans - even (especially) the seams

it's double fronted and the  zip top is the jeans zipper

this one is a keeper and inspired by my previous efforts  http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=376727.0

I really enjoyed the process and the panels remind me of flowers/roses?

6  Upcycled denim jacket to college bag in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by swapshop on: March 09, 2011 11:48:05 AM
i like pockets ..... there are only 7 in this bag Grin

this is how it started out (well nearly... only remembered the before picture after i had started ..duh!)

zippy lining

and more zippy pockets

it's for my niece starting college to carry round her books and stuff .. hope she likes it as i was actually reserved on the embroidery - compared to my other bags (see my blog http://shesewsonsunday.blogspot.com/2009/04/what-i-did-with-rest-of-jeans.html  )

finallydecided on strips with a hint of green - colourful enough to be reversible

i love your progression -- especially the centre flower to 'enhance' the middle where the stitches cross - i had that issue to - check mine out http://shesewsonsunday.blogspot.com/2009/04/colour-wheel-finished.html
 i also went on to try black http://shesewsonsunday.blogspot.com/2010/01/top-assembled.html- and made it even bigger by adding edges - still not quilted it yet - but your idea of different threads is also catching Grin
