Leftover Jeans

After finishing the jeans bag, I was left with one leg ... of the jeans. And plus, the little girl I was going to give the bag to, has a little sister, who would throw a tantrum if she doesn't get something too. So, I converted the 'other leg' into a small sling bag for her.

Cutting the pants leg into 3 parts, I stitched close on one side to make a bottom. I used 2 parts of the jeans I cut out for that. Then stitched both together back to back. In between, I inserted a side seam that I had leftover from the first project, to make a sling strap. To add a girlish touch to a sensitive girl, I added an iron-on butterfly...
... and it was done in a night.
