DIY Jeans Purse

Today I made a purse for Salwa using some old ripped jeans. I found the instructions here. It was really easy to follow and simple to do but her strap came out way better than the frayed one I made. It's ok, Salwa loved it. Now Zayneb is looking all over for her torn jeans.

I used the extra bottom part with some embroidery on it to make a little coin purse... I want to sew a zipper on it though.

  11. this is cool!! We have tons of ripped jeans that I save (and have no idea why I do) and last week I broke a zipper on my own jeans, although a purse out of my jeans would be more like a suitcase.
