My girlfriend asked me;
hey, can you make me some shopping bags made out of jeans I said: Yes, I will do my best! And in this video I show you how to do it. Out of one jeans you can make one bag. The bigger the jeans, the bigger the bag. And of course every jeans will give you a different style of bag. First we start with cutting the fabric for the outside of the bag. Then we make sure all the pieces are straight. In my case I had to cut them a little bit. Here I sew all the parts together As in the example. Then fold and sew the upper border. So it will make it more neat Now we have one big piece. Sew the ends together so the bag is closed. And then up to the bottom part. Sew the seams of the bottom of the bag When this is done, the outside of the bag is finished. And then we will go over the the handles of the bag. For the handles we take some of the left over parts of the jeans. And then sew all those small pieces together. Then fix the handles to the bag. And the outside is done. Then we go to the inside of the bag. It’s the same process as the outside of the bag, only you can make this out of one piece of fabric if you like to. Sew everything together. Put the lining into the bag And sew it together. Also put a few stitches in the bottom of the bag as well to keep the lining in place. That’s it, the bag is done!
