Design Your Own Handbag »
InstructionsMake sure to interface well. Very important for the final result. Purse was made using a boys jean jacket and cargo pocket blue jeans. Added to the blue jean purse were vintage lace, trinkets and pearls. These were sewn on pearl by pearl so that they would not move off of the purse and break. There is a shoulder strap that was made out of the jean jacket's cuffs and waist band.
