Blue Jeans Purse

This was originally posted over at Suture for a Living on February 26, 2010.


My neighbor knows I love pockets, so when her son outgrew his shorts I got them.  I deconstructed the shorts in part and moved the larger pockets.  This allowed me to keep all the pockets in use.

I used a “new to me” product called InnerFuse to stiffen the purse, giving it shape and hopefully making it more durable.  The purse has a zipper opening and is lined.

The strap is a denim belt from an old dress which is why is is darker than the rest of the bag.

I gave the shorts back to my friend/neighbor.  She loves it.
