Fab Fabrics: Repurposed Denim

Make a purse out of old jeans.

The only change I might make is to add grommets to the holes where you insert the strap to help reinforce them. If you can’t find a grommet that works, maybe sewing a big button hole would do the trick?

So, green crafters…have any of you done any fun, upcycled denim projects? Tell us all about it in the comments!
