I LOVE this bag! Reminds me of the 80's when these got really popular for a while! I think I will make one! THANX so much for your project post! OH, one question! Do you do anything to make the bag where you can close it shut, or just leave it as a "tote" bag? THANX AGAIN!

Thank you. I Still make a lot of these for adults ! Everyone seems to prefer the open tote but, I have used strings for tying, and even did a button attachments haven't tried a zipper yet . Thank you for stopping by & viewing my projects

They are SEW Easy !! Find a pair of old jeans ( thrift store ) for the size bag you want. Use legs for your shoulder strap. Cut to depth you want, sew the bottom. I use the bag , turned inside out, as a pattern for the lining. You don't have to line either. I add pockets to my lining too. Use a new Jean needle and good quality thread, and sew slowly. Make sure if you line it, to sew your shoulder strap in place before lining your bag. I work full time, but I try to check my messages, so if you need more info. Just holler, Have fun !

It looks great you could also use a denim skirt may be a little easier to convert and no crotch to deal with the back pocket could be used to keep your mobile phone in and the other your travel card. The 2 most common things pulled out of your bag !
