Bags-of-Fun August 9th, 2005

I am joining Sharon’s Bags-of-Fun Challenge to make a bag or container of some sort, from recycled jeans embellishing it using any technique available to textile practitioners.

I Plan to make a blue jeans bag the same design but slightly wider than my current handbag which I made last year…I embellished it by testing the embroidery stitches on my then new sewing machine and by hanging lots of things on it…I designed it as a traveling bag for when I went overseas and on the inside, there is pockets to hold all the different things that I needed when traveling as well as lots of jeans pockets on the outside for extra little bits…It has been a great bag, its only problem being that when fully packed it is just a little to small…

I know what your problem is: if you had a nice big bottom like mine your bag would be plenty big enough!

Great bag Annie. Fun and funky, but not too much so to carry every day.
I’ve joined the challenge too. Unfortunately, I just took all my too small jeans to the thrift store. Now I have to go there and buy a pair.
I love the bottom in your bag. Great idea to put your name there too.Back of Bag
