Not too long ago, I posted the first jean purse I made from an old pair of jeans (above picture). I had so much fun doing that and recycling old jeans that I have made a few more. I have begun to sell them. I have them on EBay for sale now and will be putting them on my site, here, for sale too!
I collected all the jeans that I no longer wear from my closet, as well as some from the closets of friends who were cleaning out. I collected not only jeans, but belts, buckles and do-dads, anything I thought would look good on a designer jean purse or as a liner for a jean purse. We had a lot of fun going through everyone's belongings and bags of items being "recycled".
When I had a bin full of goodies and jeans, I started designing purses. It is a lot of fun and can be very absorbing and rewarding!
You can see both of the purses below, at the tab above entitled "Artisan Crafts".
I made this one with a shoulder strap and metal belt in front. It has a double flap with velcro closure.
I finished this one today. It has a zip closure.
The one at the very top is the first one I made in my previous post. It has been sold!
