How to Make a Purse Out of Jeans

Funky Jeans Bag



Funky Jeans Bag: This denim bag is one of the most versatile old jeans purse patterns. You can customize it by choosing what contrasting fabric to use for the bow and trim, and it's large enough to store essentials throughout your busy day. These old jeans purse patterns work for any size jeans as well.






Cupcake Jean Purse

Cupcake Jeans Purse: Go crazy with the cupcake motif that has been enjoying popularity among crafters by making a cupcake bag! Use old jeans purse patterns to make the bag, then decorate it with delectable, yet calorie-free, cupcake embellishments!





Bow Bag

Bow Bag: This trendy bag is one of the few old jeans purse patterns that doesn't look like it's made from old jeans at first glance. That's because your old jeans are used for the lining of the bag. By lining your bag with recycled denim material, you'll be reinforcing your bag and making sure it can do all the heavy lifting you need it to do, for years to come.






Denim Pocket Purse


Denim Pocket Purse: If you're looking for the simplest of old jeans purse patterns, you may have found it with this one! This project is perfect for a child or a beginning sewer to tackle, as it requires only a few cuts and stitches.







Denim Tote

Denim Tote: Have fun decorating your jeans purse with this tutorial, which uses a combination of embellishments to achieve a one-of-a-kind and easily customizable look.








Denim Drawstring Bag

Drawstring Tote: Similar to the Denim Pocket Purse, this bag is simple enough for a beginner to try. You'll learn about recycling jeans and creating drawstring closures with this tutorial. And since this pattern only requires part of a pant leg, you can use the same pair of jeans for both old jeans purse patterns and make a set of stylish, simple, denim purses.

I like the Funky Jean Tote. This is easy to make and goes well with blue jeans and denim skirts. The young gals seem to really like these purses.

I make and sell these type of purses at Farmers Market and Craft Shows. Try using baby blue jeans and young girls with designs on. People love them, they are one of my staple products.
