I made this Jordy type bag with a pair of old pants.  I unfortunately did not get a shot of the pants.  The pocket on the front is a little off center and the zipper was too short.  But I only used one panel of the pants - so I can make like 3 more if I really get an urge! The lining was also a recon of one of BF's old button down shirts.  No interior pockets, I'm not that brave yet! The fuzzy threads inside the zipper are removable - I had to rip out the zipper only once during construction.  LOL!









Thanks for looking!! Comments welcome!

No - I bought a stash of zippers from ebay - the zipper from the pants was only like 3" long, too small even if I wanted to use it for an interior pocket.
