Jeans Bag

I have been working to a deadline over the last week. My elder grand-daughter Emma’s birthday was fast approaching and as usual I had left my stitching till the last minute. Hope she likes the casual shoulder bag made from a recycled pair of jeans that I have made for her.

DSCF2012 Jeans shoulder bag

The pattern is from Patchwork & Stitching vol 12 no 4, designed by Jan Knight. I made a few minor changes (as you do) and decided to add wider plain shoulder strap instead of the narrow plaited one in the pattern. The bag has an inner lining and the existing pockets can still be used. Looks quite good, even if I do say so myself!!
