I made this little wristlet out of a scrap of heavy dark denim and a scrap piece of wide red grosgrain ribbon. I added some machine stitching in 5 different colors to give it more interest. It's lined with an irridescent raincoat nylon taffeta.
This was a last minute gift for a girl at my work who is leaving. She is super-fashionable so I wasn't sure if anything I could make would measure up to the status bags she usually wears, but she liked it.  Grin

I like that!  The lining, the ribbon, the contrast stitching: it's all good!  Most denim bags I look at look trashy somehow, but using the ribbon as a panel and then decorative straight stitching does make it look great.  *applause* 

Yes, I am a freak for handbags.

Thanks!
Yeah I know what you mean about denim bags, they are usually either over-embellished with  lots of rhinestones or something, or they are patchworked from jeans of different shades of blue. Faded denim and new dark denim have very different  "attitudes" to them, I think.

Denim anything is always so simple and classic - great gift idea!

Yeah, dark denim looks more dressy and/or classy.  Faded or lighter denims doesn't look right to me, especially those with "whiskers."     Smiley

This is adorable and very creative! I especially like the colored machine stitching you added - it gives the bag a spunky identity.
