Visual guides using photos within a collage demonstrate how recycled jeans are awesome for these nautical style totes. The fresh blue and white stripes get me every time. I was not able to source this sewing project any further than this Chinese Micro-Blog here called RZ Designs by Robin. (I would not attempt to use this free sewing tutorial unless I had some bag-making experience under my belt as it would end up in the corner in a heap.) I notice that the handles are corded rouleaux style, which is not difficult to do! Corded bag straps are nice and sturdy. The seam around the bottom of the bag is piped and it looks gorgeous too. I really like the oval flat bottom.
