I've always wanted one of these purses made from a pair of pants, and I finally gave it a try with this (http://thelongestyear.typepad.com/my_weblog/2006/11/here_it_is_a_fi.html) tutorial. It was so easy, and only took me about 1/2 hour, and I am SLOW. I left it unlined, and my sister claimed it before I could add a belt or any other decor, but I like it anyway. Smiley (Sorry for the bad pictures)

Great job! On my first Jeans bag it ended up with a camel toe.

*looks at own pants* Hey... those look exactly like mine! Maybe my pants would look good as a bag too if i do it up like that! XD

Great job on the bag... I can see why your sister snatched it up so quickly ^.^

I didn't sew the zipper closed, just because I didn't really think it was necessary on these particular pants. A lot of people might like to have a functioning zipper, I think, as a novelty. My dad thought I should put a pocket there so you can unzip the fly and reach in to grab your cell phone. I may try that next time! Tongue

As far as lining, it probably would look a lot better if you did. I may end up lining this one. Plus - it's a used pair of pants. There should probably be a layer of protection between you and the area where someone's butt has been. Ew, that just occurred to me. I am lining that bag NOW!

It's also pretty common to thread the belt loops with a belt, fabric, or a scarf like kunickamonika did here: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=181149.0 Cute!
