After looking at them online and not wanting to spend $120-190 on one, I created this myself!

And I just saw the post on making beaded handles so I may be revamping my design a little bit in that area!!!!

Great job!  I have an entire collection of jeans waiting to be put to good use.  I think they are too large for a reasonable-sized bag, though. The lining and handles on yours really make the bag look professional.

I used a size 12 slim, but I'm sure anything in the general range would do.  It made a pretty good size purse!
