He he - what to do with an old pair of jeans and two ties...? Why a bag of course! I call this my bum bag, and it holds waaaay more stuff than I thought it would
Tip - make this from someone else's jeans, preferably a really skinny person. I'm quite skinny, but it still gave me a shock
Close up of fastening and alteration to back pockets (sewed up the outside, cut a slit on the inside and presto, inside pockets)
So whaddya think? I'm pretty proud, because I've never done any 'real' sewing before. Only trouble with it the straps - they look great but because they're shiny material they keep slipping off my shoulders. Actually it's not too bad when I'm swinging along of my own free self, coz then I can rest one hand on the bag/strap (IYKWIM), but when I'm sluggin uphill pushing a buggy loaded with heavy baby and heavy shopping I'm not quite so suave
Still room for a few patches, methinks...
