Jeans have long been an often used recycled material for a wide variety of crafts. One popular use is to cut and restitch into a durable jeans purse. This is a guide about making a jeans purse.
THAT IS REALLY CUTE. I JUST LOVE ALL THE IDEAS WE GET FROM THIS WEBSITE. I ALSO LOVE TO RECYLE OLD JEANS. I JUST POSTED A PHOTO OF A BLANKET I MADE USING JEANS AND OLD PRINTED FEED BAGS. THEY ARE HARD TO COME BY BUT MY MOTHER FOUND SOME IN HER HOUSE AND GAVE ME. I BET THE LITTLE GIRLS DO LOVE THESE PURSES. THEY DO NOT HAVE THAT MUCH TO CARRY SO THE SMALL ONES WORK FINE. THEY JUST LOVE THE GLAMOUR TOO WITH THE EMBELLISHMENTS ON THE SIDES. THANK YOU FOR SHOWING US YOUR COOL IDEA.
It's really cute!!
Very cute! Recycled denim makes wonderful purses, potholders, tote bags and more.
I dont have any girls in our family. So what about filling the pocket with hotwheels and decorate the front with things for boys. I have truck stencils. So it's not just for girls!
I thought I'd give it a try.
I wished I had used a "not" so "used" pocket! I think it would have looked nicer

The cell phone/purse pocket is cute and you could probably use different acessories for different personalities if you are giving this as a gift.
The possibilities are endless. Happy crafting!
These are fun to make. I use leather cord to make the straps with a stray shoelace would be good.
Ever wonder what you can do with blue jeans that have seen better days? Favorite blue jeans may not be suitable for reuse because of all the wear and tear.
Recycled Girls Skort and Wool Sweater Purse. I found these cute girl's skort at the thrift store. I cut the shorts out of the inside, hand stitched the bottom with a coordinating embroidery floss.

Make a statement, flower-child style, with this boho bag made from recycled denim. The fun of making these purses is that there are no rules - anything goes It's a great way to recycle favorite costume jewelry, use up bits and pieces of ribbon and trim and put creative juices to work for a truly one-of-a-kind result.
Recycle those old jeans into a Valentine's Day denim heart purse. Here is the link to the free pattern information.
Get a pair of old jeans worn by your friend's children. Cut off legs and sew cut bottom under pockets closed. Gather it a little before sewing. Use legs fabric to form a sturdy strap and sew on.
I am looking for directions on how to make a purse out of decorated old jeans. I've seen a few around and they are really cute. They are made out of children's outgrown jeans.

All I can say is I know what you are talking about I have seen them too. They look simple enough to make just go to a store where you say them last a copy the pattern from pictures taken with your camera of the purse and experiment with your own design.
If you are too shy to take pictures ask the store clerk for the person's name and number that makes the purses. If that fails I am sorry, but you are on your own as I am still trying to figure out how to make them too. I hope I was of some help.
I had one I hauled around for years, and it was from my jeans. Just cut off the legs, leaving about half an inch. Turn the hip part inside out and stitch across the leg openings. Cut a long strip for the shoulder strap. It should be the length you want plus two inches, and about 4 inches wide (or adjust depending on how you like your shoulder strap). Stitch it tightly to the sides of the waistband. I like to make a big "x" with my sewing machine and then sew a box around that for a really tight attachment. Then decorate it the way you want it. Mine had bits of an old off-white doily, some rhinestones and a charm. I got a lot of compliments on it, and it was big enough to put in a book and my lunch if I wanted to. These days you'd probably want some iron-on daisies and swirls and some pastel buttons. Good luck!
See feedback from coreenhart - she had great ideas. You could also cut further down the legs (like shorts) and just sew up the bottom of the legs (rather than the hips) and you'd have two ready made compartments! :)

Take an old pair of bluejeans and lay them flat on a table, using some heavy scissors cut both legs off right at the crotch area. Now turn jeans wrong side out and then take them to your sewing machine and sew across the legs closing the cut off area.
