I had seen one similar online: I decided that it would be simple enough to copy. I was over-optomistic.
I bought, at a resale shop, a pair of children's jeans, and cut off the legs. The top part has been "ripening" for nearly a year. Yesterday, I finally decided to just make it happen.
I ripped the crotch, and got a piece of denim for the bottom.  Putting it together was challenging, because of the original jeans' shape. I did get it together, though.
Then, putting a lining into it proved equally challenging. I had already decided to use pre-bought handles. I found this pair in an older storage chest.
I couldn't put the lining into the bag the way I usually do. Eventually, I chose to just sew it around the top.
After breaking a needle, I used a leather needle, and it finally got done.


It turned out kinda cute, but it probably could have used a bit more planning.

Thank you.
Maybe it was the challenges that made it seem unattractive to me. It might look better tomorrow.

 Well -- I've decided that it's not really "me", so I took it to a resale shop.
I can say I've made one.
