Few days ago was my best friend's birthday and I made her an special gift: a purse with a pair of jeans she had given to me (they were new but she didn't use them because of the size and I didn't like bottoms with wings! LOL).

I made different patterns (at least three) in order to adjust wings size to purse shape... and at last I found the one I show you!
Wings are a flap that goes from the bottom rear part to the front.



Back part:


Front part:


Front pockets are still pockets!


Inside look:


All the denim I've used comes from this pair of trousers.



Last wensday I deliver the purse and when my friend was opening the present I was really scared "If she doesn't like it at all"... but my friend turned out to be very happy!!

What to you think about my purse??

Thanks for reading!  Smiley

That's quite cool. I like the wing pattern, especially. I recall my mum making me something like that out of my favorite pair of (too-small) shorts when I was young. Nice memories..! In any case, it's quite cute. Good job!!

That turned out great!  I really like how you placed the wing pattern on the purse.  Those jeans look waaaay better as a purse Smiley
