Upcycled Jean Purse

This is the 3rd purse I have made from old jeans. They say the 3rd time is the charm and I agree. I've gotten much better with my workmanship and choosing lining and men's neck ties.

On the bottom and inside I used old curtains, so three parents birthed this baby jean purse.

Old Jeans to Purse

I watched a video on the youTube channel expertvillage and learned how to make a purse from an old pair of jeans. I used an old scarf for the lining and bought the zipper. (boo on buying something new) I added my own twist by quilting two men's ties into straps. This was my first zipper, too!

Men's Tie to Gadget Case

My first upcycle / recycle project was with a tie. I love men's ties. Sometimes I wish I were a man. I would wear them everyday. LOL.

This was my first one. Was dying to do a button hole on my new Janome sewing machine. :-)
