A bag made from old denim jeans and an M&M bag.
I am always looking for ways to challenge myself creatively and as I was browsing the site I looked over onto my desk at a M&M wrapper. I thought, this could make a good bag! So I ran up to my room and spent an hour creating this little jewel. I personaly like the way it turned out!
