Projects - Upcycle Jeans Bag

How many of us has jeans that are sitting in our wardrobe and seldom worn. Here's a good way to put them to good use.

This is the first pair of jeans bag that I did. I managed to upcycle 2 bags out of a pair of jeans. One for myself and one for my daughter. I prefer a shoulder sling and Kimi asked for a dual (shoulder and cross sling).

Sometimes, friends will pass me their own pair of jeans to be upcycle and I currently have about 5 on the waiting list to be done up. Busy busy.
