Upcycled Embellished Denim Purse

What are you most proud of? I love the Boho hippie feel to this bag. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Be warned that you have to have a machine capable of sewing through a lot of tough layers! At one point I had my poor little Pfaff seaming two layers of denim plus two layers of poly cotton twill plus two layers of fringe. It's a project best suited to an industrial machine or an old, all metal gears machine. If you have a newer machine you will have to exercise very careful judgment in how to baby your machine through the toughest steps.

You Can Make This
