for ppl that hate a purse when out dancing
I cut up an old pair of jeans for another project and didnt want to just throw away the left overs... i used things i had in my craft froom so this project was free for me. heres an idea I had for the pockets. comes in handy when you wear an outfit that doesnt have pockets itself and u dont want to carry a purse.

heres my first tutorial!
