In this free sewing video DIY, the folks from DIY Crafts TV show us an easy method to stitch this hip denim purse from a pair of jeans and some non-stretch cotton fabric for lining! Learn how to re-purpose a back pocket, waistband, and button closure while creating this bag.
We love how the shank button was re-used along with the waistband to create a button-tab closure without doing all of that sewing! The buttonhole is already stitched, the waistband is now a sturdy tab! Belt loops keep everything in place. Make sure you use a needle for denim.
Tip: Use a brightly colored cotton fabric for lining so it is easier to see what is inside your bag.
