My Idea Of Making A Purse or Bag From Old Jeans

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!!                                                                                      DSC00772                              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.
