"Jeans-that-were-made-into-a-hillbilly-purse" kind of thing.
My husband had thrown out this pair of jeans. So, in the interest of recycling, I rescued them and made this purse/tote bag. I'm not completely happy with it. It's big and still looks like "old-jeans-that-were-made-into-a-hillbilly-purse", kind of thing. I'm thinking about altering it further with paints and other fabrics, but wanted to show it in it's current state. It's pretty sturdy and is lined with a green calico fabric that I got in a box of scraps from my mom. I didn't even have to buy a heavy duty needle or thread, so this didn't cost me a dime. Well, maybe if you count the electricity and my time... Stay tuned.
