Denim Pocket Purse


Both kids and adults can create the Denim Pocket Purse because it is easy and does not involve sewing. You can pick out a pair of old jeans from your closet or spend a few dollars on a pair of denim from the thrift store. The more decorative the pocket is on the jeans already, the more adorable your purse will be. This is a "green" craft that you can do yourself or you can help your child do it depending on his or her age.
