Hi everyone !
I normally hang out at the Needlework area, sometimes in the Crochet area but now made this little drawstring bag and wanted to share...

Made from one leg of a pair of jeans size 18 months.
I have a terrible (emotional) time getting rid of my dd's outgrown cloths so I want to preserve some by reusing/recycle/repurpose.

Here it is...

My source:

The casing for the drawstring its already made ... the seam of the leg. Just remove a few stitches and thread your string thru it  Wink .

What do you think !!!?Huh

What a great way to reuse the legs!  I have never seen anything like this, great job. Smiley Draw string is creative too.

Aww, I love it. Maybe I should make one, since my own pencil case is falling apart. I've only had it for two months! It is this vinyl type stuff and the zipper is falling out. It was an eye pencil case.

Me + Craftster = LOVE. Wink
