Bags from rags @ 17:33

Shopping bags and a bra washbag made from recycled jeans and curtains:





These were all made as presents for Christmas and nearby birthdays.

Each bag is a bit different as I try out new things and according to the properties of the jeans I have available.
I only use jeans that have something wrong with them - holes or bad stains - and use the bits that still have lots of life in them.
Any jeans I get given that are in good condition go to a charity shop.
The linings of the shopping bags are made from old curtains.

I would also love a tutorial or pattern for these - these are some of the very cutest denim bags I have seen. LOVE the "square" look of them, and the very functional-but-cute handles!
