Denim Pocket Purse
Looking for crafts using old denim jeans? Make a Denim Pocket Purse from Debbie Madson. It's super stylish and fun. Best of all, you can recycle an old pair of jeans!
- Old pair of jeans
- Tote bag strap
Cut out the front leg of your jeans including the waistband and front pocket. You just want the front panel for this project.
Fold jeans in half, if it is longer than you'd like trim off excess on the end. Hem the bottom of the pant leg.
Fold jeans in half right sides together. Trim to match edges if needed. Pin sides and sew along two side edges. Turn right sides out.
- Attach a strap by sewing it onto the sides of the bag. We've used tote bag straps but you can also try a belt, tie, cording, strip of jeans, etc.
