Recycled denim bags

As you might know already I really love to make bags and purses. I’m experimenting with combining crocheting and sewing to make some of my bags. You can see these in my earlier posts.
The past few weeks I was working on my first fully sewn bags. I used my favorite material-denim. To be more specific recycled denim, which I’m getting in my favorite charity store. The varieties are endless and it keeps the cost of material reasonably down.
As I mentioned before I only have minimal sewing skills and I –with some (big) help from Google –managed it.
The star shoulder bag you can see right below is measuring: cca 44cm x 37cm(17,6” x 14,8”), handles 50cm(20”).

The fold over bag you can see right below is measuring: cca 35cm x 45cm(14” x 18”), handles 50cm(20”).

I hope you like the bags as much as I do. I would like you to take this post as an encouragement to all of you, who are not professional tailors, and would like to try to sew something for yourself. It can be done with a little bit of dedication. 

Have a nice week
