I have a grand daughter age 8 who will love this. I asked her mom if she had any of the grand daughters old jeans. She said yes, in a bag ready to be donated. I got a pair and made the purse myself. There is nothing to it. Now I will add the decorations and it will be done. She will be thrilled to have a purse made out of her own old jeans.

I like this style...................... very creative.................... i think lots of teenagers and artists would love it.................

This is so cute! Can you tell me where you got the pre-made purse? I've been looking all over the web. I saw a similar blog that got it from Wal-Mart, but I can't find it on the website. Thanks, Amy
