2015-01-14 16.26.13The latest trend in everything is upcycling – the process of taking already used materials and transforming them into better things. It’s a great trend because it allows us to use what we already have and make great and fun items out of them. In the spirit of upcycling, I took a pair of jeans that was no longer usable and made them into a nice little handbag.

As a result of being made from an actual pair of jeans, they have three great pockets to store all your little items. Did you know that big girls get real pockets in their jeans? Well, you can use them to hold your keys, your make up compacts, or whatever you’d like.

2015-01-14 15.52.21The  bag measures 9 1/2″ across, 10″ deep and has a base that’s 3″ wide. It has two 20″ handles that have been bulked up with the side seams from the legs of the jeans.

This is the first item I’m putting up for sale. You can get it at my Etsy Shop right here:
