Here is a look of the Bag I am making from an Old Pair of Jeans Continued! I added the lower part of the bag by crocheting around the loops I had attached on the jeans. The bottom I created by crocheting in the back loop of the round where I wanted the height of the bag to stop. I then proceeded to keep crocheting around and started to decrease the stitches until I was able to close up the hole and fasten off.
Here is the back and front view of the bag. . I do plan on using this as a beach bag so I thought it was a good idea to fill the bag with beach towels to show you what type of shape the bag will take on once it is filled. I am happy so far with the way this bag has turned out. It has a lot of room and I know it will hold what I usually take to the beach! You of course could always use a bag like this for a Market Bag.
I am still in the process of making the straps or handles for the bag! I have thought about crocheting all three colors at once together or even braiding them together. Hmmmmm not sure yet what I will do! 🙂 If you have any ideas for straps or handles be sure to leave a comment below. I love getting input and ideas from people!!

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.
