The Craftster Craft Challenge

...was to make something new and original with an old pair of jeans. Well it may not be the most original thing, but it was new to me. And I didn't just cut the legs off and make a bag out of that - I did deconstruct the jeans entirely and make a bag trying to be imaginative.

Lining - pockets and everything! See Bella project inside!
Button used as fastening for top of bag!
Back of bag - front jeans pockets sewn together to make extra-wide pocket.
Detail - goat cut out of red fabric and wonda-webbed and then sewn around the edges. Ribbon from VW Rouleuax [or however it's spelt!] with stars on red metal thread from the Artstore.

Good for you Elaine! That's lovely and I can see you getting a lot of use out of it. You quite into sewing as well?
