Making a Crocheted Denim Purse

September 30, 2010

This is a denim purse with jute handles and a button closure. I crocheted a rectangle for a sample, since I wasn't sure the heavy weight denim would work for this project. Instead of starting over, I chose to make a purse with it.

Approximate Time: One afternoon

Supplies:

Instructions:

    Cut denim into 1 1/2 inch strips. I just used scraps I had from other projects, so the colors don't match exactly.

  1. Sew ends together to have one continuous piece to work with. I did this by machine, but you can also do it by hand.
  2. Crochet a rectangle twice the size you want your purse to be tall. My purse ended up being 14 inches wide by 9 inches high.
  3. Sew the sides together.
  4. Crochet jute as wide as you would like your handles to be. I crocheted the jute about 1 1/2 inches wide until I liked the width for the purse.
  5. Sew the side seams with the sewing needle and fishing line. Attach the jute handles through a "hole" in the crocheted piece and tie a slip knot. Repeat until the handles are attached in a placement that satisfies you.
  6. For closure, attach a large button and an elastic loop for closure.

Recycle those old denim jeans or shirts into a cool Rag Bag! I crocheted this rag bag using two old denim shirts that were worn out.
