  • Step 1

    take your scraps of jeans and cut it to the size of your purse mine is like a shape of a trapazoid a think lolz but anyway i also added polyster tulle to make the jeans look darker and have texture. so with the tulle it goes a piece of jeans, tulle, tulle, and then jeans again. i hope that makes sense. so i had the jean on the outside and tulle in the middle like a sandwich.

  • Step 2

    next i sewed the four pieces together by hand. if you have a sewing machine this should go faster. starting from one side i sewed it like a "U" shape. leaving the top open.

  • Step 3

    after that i cut up the T shirt to fit the inside of the bag. i just used one piece and sewed the sides together. now while the bag is rightside out take the bag and put it inside the denim bag. now sew both pieces together along the top.

  • Step 4

    now that its all sewn together fold the top twice and sew the bottom. dont sew the top yet you have to pin the lace to the right side and then sew the top. now if you dont like the way you sew and want to cover the inside sew a ribbon to the rim of the inside. but before i sewed on the ribbon i added those eyelet snaps so the top could close. if you know how you could add a zipper ro somethin but yeah thats about it. if you dont understand i'll try to put up a video or something
