Oh my gosh. That is dang cute! I am going to make this darling bag. Thanks for sharing the tutorial!



This is a refreshing design; nice work!



What a great effect. I have mad many recycled denim bags, but none looked this characterful.


This is so cute, I can't wait to try this. Thank you

I'm glad you like it. It's been a while since I wrote this tutorial.


Cool bag Julia! really nice.. I have a pile of old jeans to get through!

Thank you sooo much for the advice. I've been trying to get the fabric to fray and have made a big mess trying to do it with a stitch picker. I've put it in the dryer and tumbled it, which helped a bit, but didn't think about washing it first in the machine. This will help tremendously. One other question--how do you get the "grain" of the denim on an even line before you ever cut out any pieces? I tried pulling a thread but it breaks. Thanks for helping


Great tutorial and design. Many thanks!


Fantastic! I'm going to try this one. I've made jean bags before but did not fray them. Love this...
