It's not a big secret that I am addicted to handbags. Thankfully I guess there are worse things to be addicted to! Here's one I finished today, reconstructed from a pair of jeans that fit last year but that somehow must have mysteriously shrunk in the wash...   

Oh well, they look prettier as a bag than they ever did on me anyway! The strap is a belt - a very easy way of achieveing an adjustable strap. There are two pockets on the front flap, and one internal pocket too. And it's big. Really big. Yay!
