What materials did you use? An old pair of Levi's jeans from my closet.

What are you most proud of? I get compliments on it every day and am now selling them on Esty and a local crafts store.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Use a heavy duty industrial sewing machine and thread. Have fun!

I made one out of my Grandson's favorite Levis. He was so upset he outgrew them. So I made a bag and use it daily. He looked at me ad said "Oh Nana... Your too funny!" He is 6 And I love my bag.

great idea, I also made a bag out of my grand daughter's denim skirt. made a belt and handles out of an old camel color suede jacket. Put the belt through the loops of the skirt waist. It came out adorable and got so many compliments.
