Bag Jag, 3

In an effort to finish up smaller projects, I've been working on a jeans bag. I always wanted a jeans bag. Of course, I have a huge stack of old jeans (simply can't throw them out), so I could make a number of them in different styles. Here I wanted to use the pockets, well, just the whole top of the jeans, which has such a distinctive style. I made a cotton lining and zigzagged on two back pockets to each side, so I have four solid pockets on the outside and four on the inside. Nice engineering, if I do say so myself--although I haven't figured out the straps yet.
Then I found a pleasing plaid and picked out a couple of matching solids. More extreme needle turn adventures on the horizon!

You're very good at making bags, Nadia ;-)
Love the jeans .... but it won't be easy to do your needle turning on this !!!
Used some jeans fabric in a piece once (and some more layers) and it took me tongs to get the needle trough sometimes !?!

Hi, Els. Yeah, I know the difficulty. I'm trying to stick to just top threads. Fortunately, I'm of a stubborn nature...
