I finished a bag that I started last week. It's going to replace a red one that was one of my first bags that I made. I stopped at the handle(s) but ended up only doing one. Tonight I put all the pieces together.  Now that I have worn it on my shoulder I will already be revamping to two black cotton webbing straps since I don't have any more material. It's too wide to really work with only one strap.

I made this bag from an old pair of jeans that I loved but had to say good-bye (it made my rear look great)and some really cool batik that looks like bubbles. I used the two back pockets as for the outside pockets and some of the back legs as inside pockets. I think once I fix the handle I'm going to really fall in love.

All of these are so pretty...love the fabric samples.  Very nice!

**PS:  I clicked your etsy link, but an error comes up...so I played around with the search and found you, and your shop is really nice!  You may want to fix your link, though, so all of the other craftsters here can see your nice things!  Smiley**

Thanks for the heads up.

have you thought about doing a gussetted bottom so they are a little more roomy?  I love making clutches but never have enough room for all my stuff...

I usually do but I was limited on fabric and I consider what I made for those "girl's night out" or "Date night" type clutches.

I like the colors scheme.  So, you used the top of the legs of jeans for the top of the purse and came down the leg for the bottom?  This is cute.  I just cut some jeans up thinking about turning the waist into a apron.  Got some legs lying around.  I looked at your clutch purses they are adorable.

No, I turned the jeans into Bermuda shorts and used the pieces I cut off into the purse.

After I went through all the fabric samples I got from my mother (1st post, http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=259014.msg2898218#msg2898218, 2nd post: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=259933.msg2909987#msg2909987) and made what I could with those I was looking at 6 pairs of jeans that I have collected from my own closet as well as  from others who were going to give them to good will. I had a few ideas but none were motivating me to take action until I started my "idea book".

So last night after I had gotten my son to bed I went into my craft room and went through all my fabric. I noticed that my pile of 1/2 yards were piling up. So I decided to make tote bags with the jeans and 1/2 yards. it's a simple design with no pockets in the inside but there is one that I added to the outside from the pockets of the jeans.

For this being my first one it's on the smaller side (using the bottom part of the legs) and next time I will make it larger (the top sections of the legs) so I can add more of the pockets from the jeans. I'm also going to use cotton webbing for the handles to certain bags if the colors work. For this one's handles I used what little fabric I had left after using it for the lining.

These were small pieces of fabric that this was all that I could do with it.
