DIY: denim purse

DIY: denim purse

As promised, here it is: my very own version of this:

What did I need?
Old jeans that I don’t wear anymore, sewing machine and blue tread, blue zipper, old shoulder strap, silver chain and metal clasps I bought in hobby art shop and flower of my choice. I bought blue sparkly rose because hey – it is blue sparkly rose. :) I bought it at a chinese shop and it was a part of headband so I bought two. You’ll see what I did with them in the pictures. ;)

First I took dimensions for my new bag, and by taking dimensions, I mean using top of the plastic container hahahahaha. :D

Next step was sewing. I had a tough time with denim, constantly stretching out of its place… But, again, test for my patience. :) First I sew the middle part to see how much space will I need to fit the shoulder strap from another bag in.

After I sew one side it really became tricky to sew, but I made it. :) I forgot to sew zipper first (of course), so I had to unstitch it and improvise a bit. That’ s why I’m not completely happy with the zipper part. Also, I put on some glue on the sides of zipper to hold it in place. I can’t remember when exactly I sew on the rose, I think after everything was done. What I did with the rose? I took it off the headband and removed the bow that was in the middle and replaced it with white pearl bead. I did the same with other headband, and I glued the bow to the headband I took rose from. That left me with matching headband and purse.

This was pre-blog era, so I’m lucky I have ANY photos of making this purse. I made it a year ago and it is still as it was the first day. It is disproportionately because of denim stretching and pulling the strap inside, but I like it that way. It’s more unique to me. :)

What do you think?
