I'm new to Craftster, and to these challenges, but it is such fun!   However, I apparently can't post a picture yet :-(  So maybe the above link will work?

I made this from an old pair of my daughter's jeans.  There was cute embroiderery on the leg, so I cut off the leg, sewed up the bottom and hemmed the top into a bag.  Then I took off the ribbon belt that had come with the jeans and sewed that on to be the handle.  It made a great little gift bag, that is now being reused as a purse!  I'm thinking about cutting off the other pantleg and leaving it long to be a wine bottle gift bag :-)

Yeah!  Awesome recycling!  Very cute!

Stylist and designer, a fashionista with a subversive streak. I believe that fashion should be fun and fortifying, not mean or oppressive.
