Here are two different versions of how to turn an old pair of jeans into a tote bag. Use the right needle for sewing through that thick fabric!

The material in jeans, denim, is quite sturdy. You can find jeans quite cheap at thrift stores & even garage sales. I like the first one with the pretty flowers. Although I can only imagine the extra time to create those & then sew them on.
Has anybody created a bag or purse from jeans? Do you have a different way of doing it?
