My Old "Fat Lady" Jeans Tote Bag

What are you most proud of? Well I AM proud that I lost that weight! I'm also pleased that thanks to Kristin's excellent instruction, along with the printed class materials, I was able to apply what I learned to come up with my own tweak of her design. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Definitely take Kristin's class!!! Make a tote or two according to her instructions, then try your own adaptation of the design.

Thanks so much!!! I had lots of fun making those jeans and I'm going through my collection of old muu muus, pedal pushers, etc. to see what else I can repurpose. Any idea what I can do with my old fat lady bras??? :))
