Quilting Cottons Will Work Nicely, Too!
Turn soft old jeans into a lovely bag that coordinates beautifully with your favorite casual outfits. The bag is nicely sized to be used as a purse, or tote sewing supplies to class.
While the example is made from old jeans, you can also use new lighter weight denim fabric or even quilting cotton in denim colors.
Or, make the bag in whatever colors of quilting cotton you prefer. It’s a lovely design that will be beautiful in many color combinations.
Simple piecing, decorative applique and a button-and-loop flap closure set this bag apart.
The finished bag is 10 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ x 4″.
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
