Turning Jeans into Denim Tote Bags

What you'll learn

Do you have old denim jeans that either don't fit, have holes or stains on them? Do you just hate to throw things out? In this class, you will use all your old denim items of clothing to create a fun patchwork messenger bag that can be worn with almost anything. Learn some great techniques on how to use various parts of your jeans such as back pockets into pockets on your bag and many other beginner bag-making techniques such as making handles and lining the bag. Every fabric used in this bag will be made from our old clothing so no need to go out and buy new fabric.
