Created primarily out of the legs of jeans this casual bag is perfect for everyday! Β I really like the shape of this bag, the pleats, and the way it is topped with bands of denim used as handles. Β This bag is linedΒ with cotton and uses a button-loop closure. Β This is an intermediate sewing project.

Always use a photo tutorial as just a basic guide!

    I’m making this lovely bag at the moment so I can use it on the weekend. I was just wondering what part of the jeans did you use for the handle? Love your work!! Thankyou for sharing this awesome bag :)
