Handmade bag of jeans . It’s very simple and cute 

Handmade bag of jeans

We will need  old jeans to make our bag

If these jeans are skinny so the bag will be a little tote,

the wider the jeans the bigger the bag.

measure approx 7 inch down, same as the width, and half again,

Cut. so if your trouser leg is 15 inch flat then measure 15 plus say another 8.

 From the cut top, measure down your 7 inches(or what ever your length is).
 
Sew across.

 Turn up the jeans, you can iron the seam if you want

 Now turn the whole thing inside out, making sure you push the corners out and flat.

 The tricky part is cutting the flat bottom.
 
You need to line up the side seam on one side with the base seam.
 
This forms a triangle, pin, measure up from the point, measured 1 inch if a larger bag go for 2 inches. Chalk or pen
 
mark, sew across and then cut.

Repeat this on the other side,

Your base should look like this

 Flip the bag back inside out and now you have a turn up bag!

finish the top,use a piece of fabric as in picture

 Now you could leave this as it is and use them for storage bags in kids bedrooms or for your cottons, zips,

anything! or you can add handles.

 cut from the jeans 2 x 14″ by 2″ strips, you make you handles as long as you wish.

Folding long ways fold the into the middle and fold in half, as bias binding looks, then sew down the length.
 
 this adds to the’jean look’.
 
You could try sewing and turning inside out, turn under 1″ strips inside out is almost impossible in denim fabric!
 
 Next cut 4 x 2″ strips of matching bias binding 

 As per the photo, fold these to the middle, then in half and sew one of each on the end of your handles

Take one handle place on bag, 
Sew the handles on by stching anyway you want on the yellow tabs, a square, an X.
 
Then repeat for the other handle on the other side.
