We all love our jeans, and when they wear out, we can't bear to be parted from them, so we recycle them into jeans bags for our grandma's girls! Come join us and do some recycling today!
First we cut off the legs of our jeans. and turn them inside out. Then we pin above the crotch from side seam to side seam.
We sew this seam up. We cut a piece of jeans from one leg, about 2 1/2 inches wide and longer than we think we will need, for the strap. It's a big decision how long to make the strap!
For fun we sew a strip of ribbon along the center of the strap. What color shall we use? Such important decisions!
We pin the strap to one side and sew it on. Then we decide how long it should be. Hm, how long should we make this strap? Now we sew it to the other side.
And now to the decorating! We use permanent markers to make butterlflies, flowers, hearts, etc.
And here it is! Our very own jeans bag! Think of how much fun this will be to make with your very own Grandma's Girl! And please remember to send us lots of photos so that we can enjoy them together!
