I made this jean banana bag while sitting at the flea market today, I kinda like it. I wasn't real sure about it when I saw it in the book but it's kinda fun.




P.S. Don't mind the "sex goddess" outfit, it had been a long day outside, I was going for comfort over beauty. :p

you know I kinda like that, but I think I would somehow finish the raw edges, maybe just stitch back about half an inch and snip so it frays or heaven forbid, bias tape it.

I used purple bias tape to kind of clean up the opening, upon Susankg53's advice. Smiley


And I added this flower for some more color, it's the first time I had cut out a flower or anything like this and the first time I'd used that fray check stuff too.

You pretty much take a pair of jeans, cut the legs off at the crotch and then at the bottom you cut a U shape out of the inner legs. Sew up the skinny straight part that the U makes and then sew the larger part (the "bottom" of the bag) of the pant legs together, then the two skinnier parts (the straps)

I've got a bunch of old jeans, I think I might just try this out. By the way, the flower was a nice touch.

Next time I make one, I might dye the jeans first. Thought that might be cute. I'd love to see the one you make!
