A Recycled Denim Bag

Look what I made...


It took me about 2 weeks working off and on when time allowed to put this cute little purse/shoulder bag together. I have some of my granddaughters old jeans and some that were a teenagers that were given to me for my granddaughter or niece. The hand-me-downs are either wayyy too big (niece) or wayyy too small (granddaughter). A few pair are in pretty bad shape. I couldn't stand the idea of throwing them away so I've cut them up.

I really had fun making this and working out the details and have already started another. I put this one in my etsy shop. There are more pictures there too. I'm not by any means a seamstress but I think this will hold up pretty good. It would be great for a pre-teen or teen.

I also wanted to share that I received the Kreativ Blogger Award from the wonderful Peggy Gatto. I feel so honored. :) I usually visit Peggy's Mixed-up Art blog and found she has another blog called My Coloring Book too. Or maybe I have been there and just don't remember. Anyway, I like both of those blogs and really enjoy visiting her mixed-up art blog. I'll be back later this week with my picks for the Kreativ Blogger Award. Who will they be?............

Happy Cinco De Mayo tomorrow,

Tess
