Ok so On my day off decided to pull out my trusty sewing machine and get started. I had some old clothes that I had been collecting for a project like this. So I got to work and cut up my old jeans that didn't fit anymore and my mom had dropped off a bag of clothes that I could use. found a shirt I could use for it. The lining was from prexisting fabric I had lying around and here's the outcome. I really like it a lot. Its been awhile  since I got back into sewing.So  let me know what you think.
I was thinking about starting a etsy store but I'm not sure yet. We will see.

Hope you like it!

Ignore the  kitty in the pic the kids thought it would look nice lol!

Very cute!  I like that you used different shades of denim (that's what it looks like to me!).  The hearts are adorable!

Thank you I actually used only the denim for the bottom of the bag the hearts and the straps. I used an old shirt that had a woven material but it does look denim if you look at it too lol.

Well I'm actually working on a new bag at this moment so stay posted for it! Wink

keep trying and never give up on your dreams
