I have had this idea in the back of my mind for a while now. I thought I would try and see what I could do to combine my love of crocheting and the use of some jeans that I am not going to wear anymore. My mind was going round and round with ideas on how to accomplish this task!
My first task was to cut up the jeans but I did not want to do any cutting until I had an idea of what I wanted to do. Lets just say I did cut the jeans but did I know exactly what I was going to do? Not really!! Pictured above is what I have gotten done so far. As you can see I did cut the jeans off and left the front pockets in tact. I did remove the back pockets of the jeans. The yarn that I am going to use to crochet on the bag is Bernat Handicraft Cotton. The colors of cotton thread that are pictured are the ones that I am going to combine together to make a Bag.
In my minds eye I see this as a Beach Bag! I love the bright colors and they bring to my mind a day of being at the beach. Of course this bag will be big enough to use for a market bag, an overnight bag or as a big purse!
The bag so far is 18″ wide. I am uncertain at this time as to what the length of it will be. In order to crochet onto the jeans I took some of the cotton thread to make loops all around the jeans. I will post more pictures as I continue to progress on this project.
