Hey GirlMoguls, it’s crafty Daisy here, with another cool little craft you can make at home. I bet you have a pair or two of old jeans lying around that you’re just not sure what to do with. So why don’t you turn them into a cool purse that’s an expression of your own style.
Step 1: using the waistband of the jeans as the opening, cut the legs off a bit longer than you want the purse to be. If you have to go past the inseam, then just cut across and split the inseam – you can sew the flaps together later.
Step 2: Next turn the jeans inside out, sew across the bottom of the legs to seal off the purse. to seal off the bag. You may have to sew up the inseam as well.
Step 3: Make your straps – cut strips of fabric from the remainder of the jeans to make the straps of the purse and then sew those onto the waistband.
Step 4: To make a closing for the top, you could add a zipper, some velcro, or a button.
Step 5: Go glitzy – now it’s time to decorate your bag – add press on fabric jewels, patches and other fun stuff to make your bag truly cool.
