Several weeks ago I went to a really fun purse party. Everyone brought an old purse they no longer used and we traded them “white elephant style.” I left the party with a purse made from a pair of jeans, made by my creative friend Lora.
How cute is this?!
This is Leah first thing in the morning, with sleepy eyes and PJ’s on and what is she already playing with?- the denim purse she won’t let go of!
I haven’t tried my hand at making them yet, but I did find a tutorial online so that when I am ready to give it a whirl I have step by step instructions:
Make-a-Denim-Purse from wikiHow
Lora says its even easier if you use a little girls denim skirt. (She found some cute and cheap ones at Savers.) Some skirts and pants have cute little stitchings and patches that give the purse built-in character without any extra effort on your part!
Have fun with this one!
