Denim jeans refashioning blitz!

I have a big stash of denim jeans that people gave me for refashioning. What to do with a mountain of old, ribbed jeans? Make bags of course. I used scraps from my fabric scraps stash and created these 5 cute cross-body purses for my friends' daughters. The zippers were all thrifted but I did have to buy the straps.

First I cut all the jeans at the side seams and then cut standard sized stripes from them. I then sewed them together to create these little bags. I tried to make them look as unique as possible using my fabric/ribbon scraps.

I was just given the legs from a pair of jeans (now cutoff shorts) and was thinking of making wine totes out of them...I love denim for bags! Yours are all so cute and I bet the girls loved them!
