I took a pair of black jeans that my mom's friend Carolyn gave me to recreate with. Congratulations to Carolyn for losing a ton of weight and getting rid of all those big clothes. I made two purses, I cut out a bear pattern and I still have another section to make another purse. Wow, I think I used almost every inch of this pair of jeans. I also used old ties to embellish with and use for the shoulder straps. What do you think?

This was scrap pieces left over from a previous purse I made. I just can't bare to throw anything out. I need help. LOL I figure I could have a worse habit, right? I just don't want to fill the landfill any more than necessary, why when it can be restyled.
You can check out my previous blog that shows the other purse I made from the same skirt.

Okay so I can't seem to figure out what people like more aprons or purses or totes or ... So I thought I would make a little bit different shoulder bag. I'm not certain I like this one. It does seem to grow on me but I don't think I would personally use it. Maybe for a young girl. What do you think?
This cute little white Canyon River Blues tank top got paint on it but as you probably already figured out I have a terrible time throwing things out, why will be another post. LOL Well I made it into a grocery bag. I made two roses from the bottom of the tank that I cut off. Let me know what you think. Thanks!
