There's nothing more comfortable than an old pair of jeans...

Here is my latest bag - another of my recent creations... It was made with the same pattern as this bag with a few variations and is reversible. I used a preloved pair of jeans I bought at Savers and some furniture fabric I bought at Spotlight.

It was a bit fiddly, because I wanted to use the pockets as a feature, but it was well worth the effort.

I really love it.

Oh - and my friend loved froggy.

The bag looks great. When I read your post title for your blog I thought you were actually wearing old jeans and thought to myself "there's nothing more comfortable than an old pair of jeans unless of course you've gained weight then a pair of tracky dacks with stretchy elastic are pretty good!"

Hmmm...you're getting my creative juices flowing again. I'll have to make something this weekend - actually, I will be as I just bought myself a sewing table/center. Sometimes you just have to spoil yourself, right?

Big hugs,
Patty

I can't wait to create when I have a slow pace of life in NZ....

I will be visiting your blog often for inspiration. Thanks

mmm, I've just done a wardrobe overhall that includes several, actually more, pairs of jeans... Funnily all Levi's, some highwaisted ('80's), some mid waisted ('90's) and some from a time when I had a waist... which I am hoping will make a reappearance sometime soon... However I digress...your bag is inspirational and If I ever made the time to do any sewing...this is one project I'd endeavour to do!!!
