Old jeans purse patterns help you save money on fabric and cut closet clutter. Best of all, you can make any size purse you want - make a small clutch for night and a large tote for day.

Want to know what to make with old jeans? There are several different styles of bags and purses you can make from old jeans, so there's guaranteed to be one to fit your style and lifestyle.

 

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 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 think two of your posting are beside the wrong bags, the cupcake and bow bags, the product info are reversed.

Hi CheryleAllene--Thanks for your comment. We checked the post and it looks okay to us. It could be that one of the photos didn't load properly and screwed the rest of them up, but everything lines up for us. Thanks so much for your concern! --FaveCrafts Editor

Why can'I save this pattern to my foler on my computer with my other patterns from various places.

Hi Nancy, I just clicked to save the project at the top, and it worked for me. Try again and it should appear in you saved projects! Hope this helps!

I agree. But it's all of the descriptions that are iin the wrong place. The problem starts with the description on the Funky Jeans Bag should have been the lede, and then each description belongs to the bag above it. The only exception is the final description, which combines the descriptions for both of the bottom bags.

Sorry, my reply should have been under CheryleAllene's. That's the one I clicked.

Hi there, Thanks so much for pointing this out, we will fix the page ASAP. - Julia from FaveCrafts

I sewn bag from this tutorial.I am beginner.Thanks!

I like the funky jean purse and that is the one I am working on.

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.

A great place to find those cute jeans for a great price is at the thrift store. Our Salvation Army stores have 1/2 off clothing on Wednesdays so you can get a pair of kids jeans for $1-1.50!!

I think I've seen these a thousand times before - many times on this newsletter. Please find something new.

There is always new people to enjoy olod things.

I love these bags. : ) You can use a skirt to make these bags too. If I ca I will TRY my best to upload the pics. ; 0 Thanks Amanda.... <= =>

What else is cute is using a little girls' denim skirt for a bag. VERY easy to do, and really cute!

That is very cute. : )

Love these, have been looking for a long time for something like this. Also patterns while simple can be adapted to use other denim clothing
