Denim & Lace

This turned out so girly, I’d almost wish I made it for me!  So, here it is, Handmade Monday again, and here I am, all ahead of the game, or at least on time!  When you get done here please check out some of the other wonderful blogs by clicking on the link above. I always get great ideas, plus some of them are really funny (and there are recipes!).  They actually keep me going.  🙂

This week I spent making another Jean Purse, this one is a little simpler than the last one, but I really like it.  It’s also a gift, and I hope it’s well received.  But I have to say, I just really like the process of coming up with the idea, troubleshooting the problems and learning how the sewing thing works! I don’t know what I’ll do when I run out of people to make them for, because I can imagine them just stacking up around here. 🙂

Anyway, please go check out my latest creation Drawstring Jean Purse. BTW, Annie is modeling the purse over there. I realized she has been slacking, so expect to see her more often around the blog.

    Such an original idea and I love your approach to a project and of course you’re doing you bit for the environment with a bit of repurposing. Its great well done

      Thanks. I have always hated to waste things, even before it was *cool*! 🙂 You would have thought I was a child of the Great Depression, LOL. 🙂

  2. Lovely Idea, I have a daughter who would love something like that.

      This one was so simple, and other than the planning and running to find all of the things I needed to make it (the eyelet tool!) it really only took a couple of hours, which I like –QUICK GRATIFICATION! Thank you for stopping by, it means a lot to me. 🙂
