This is my first recycled blue jean bag.
This is another bag for a teen ager.
This is the back side of the second bag.  This young lady plays on her schools volley ball and basket ball teams.  She is in the band as well....hopefully, you can see the music buttons around the beltline of the bag.
This is my first recycled blue jean bag.

I have 2 boys at my house who always play hard in their blue jeans and wear out the knees....so my newest project was "born".  I have used their jeans, as well as my own, and designed some bags for friends and family members....I am kind of hoping this turns into a money making project because they are really fun to make!


Pattern or design used: My own design

Pictures will be up soon. I've sold a few of my bags. Great embellishments on yours. I find the smaller ones sell quicker. Good luck to you. Posted: 1:59 pm on February 25th
