I really love denim but have never yet made anything with it, so, when my daughter was throwing away some perfectly good jeans, I decided to cut them up and have a go at 'upcycling'.  Together with some 100% cotton print and some nice soft cotton wadding, they made this...

Plain on the back

Nice little zippy pocket for hiding things in

some nice big pockets for mobile, wallet etc

cute toggle closure

stiffened bottom to prevent sagging (we all need one of those!)

Trying to show the size - I used the bathroom mirror so ignore the splash marks!

I love this bag so much I'd like to keep it but I'm going to be completely unselfish and list it on both Etsy and Folksy.


  1. Jenny good job on recycling. Your bag turned out great. Winona

  2. Great job on recycling those jeans. I love sewing on denim...and I've made a lot of denim bags. Don't you love them?
