Recycled Denim Pants
What was your inspiration?
I want to make a different bag from recycled denim (I made another bag - see my projects). I decided on Messenger Bags. This bags are practical and nobody can just put their hand in your bag and take something out. I looked on the Internet and drew my own patterns.
For the sizes of the different Messenger Bags see my blog.
What are you most proud of?
That the bags came out very good and the looked good too - I got a few compliments already. I think with this kind of bags I finally found the bags that I want to sell, (Now I must just get old Denims!!!!)
For the fun of it I sew on the labels from the denims I used.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Be patient - it take a long time to lay out the pattern on the pieces of the denim and to cut the pockets to put in the bag - I used the back pockets of the denim for the inside pockets. Use the correct needle.
