My friend had a yardsale & I coveted a pair of her jeans which she gave to me after I told her of my intentions. The embroidery on the legs was so lovely...that it immediately inspired me. The result was a purse for me and one for her! Grin



The flap is one of the back pockets, and it is closed with velcro...the button is simply decorative.

Dang...I should've posted in the recycling materials area...oh well, hope you'll be inspired by it here. Comments welcome & Thanks for looking!
