Recycled Jeans Bag

First of all, I would like to say that I am still here, alive and kicking, and that I am SO behind in blogging. If you are reading this, thank you for still being here. I need to catch up, but in the meantime….

Yesterday, five of the sweetest women from the Park View Quilting Ministry came to my house to sew with me!!!! Now the sad part…I didn’t take any photos! What was I thinking?

I did sew a bag, though I am only about two months behind in the making of it from when the idea hit me. I found some cute horse fabric while thrifting. I had originally wanted to make this for a friend at work who had a birthday in JANUARY, but it didn’t happen. I picked up a couple pairs of the largest jeans I could find while thrifting so I could cut them up for fabric. Having the girls from Park View sew with me gave the perfect opportunity to finally get it done.

I’m going to give it to my friend at work tomorrow. She is an animal lover and has horses. I hope she loves it.

I hadn't thought of making them in denim. The one I made at your house, last Feb, is about worn out, literally. I just don't have time to make me another one, any time soon. Oh well. I know your friend will enjoy hers.

Love the bag. I love to use old jeans. Just did a quilt recently and another one is on the wall. Do you have a pattern for the bag? I would love to make one. I save all the pockets.

Love it! Making it out of jeans makes it very sturdy! :)

The bag is great. How could your friend not love it? Old fashioned denim makes great bags. :)
