While M.in.law was rummaging through her old clothes to look for materials and fabric for a patchwork, I saw a pair of old jeans amongst her pile. When she agreed to let me have it for my little projects, I went scissors-crazy. After I have sewn the legs together, I showed my husband the bag (without the straps yet) and he said "hey, it's my Levi's!" Too bad, it's now my jeans bag project, haha!
Cutting off the legs, to sew the bottom for the bag.
Sewing the straps from the leftover fabric of the leg piece. The handstitching detail was mainly because the fabric got too thick for my sewing machine.... and the zipper ... ... and voila! So conveniently positioned! Gotta love the pockets, so handy.
