Bag Jag, 9

The hardware on a handbag requires serious consideration...so I have been considering. A number of forlorn straps have come into my possession and one strap had brass-looking clips.












They go with the brass-looking rings on my jeans bag. 
So I covered them with denim from old jeans.
I might add bits and pieces of denim for a shabbier look...ruminating on it.
My heart swells up with satisfaction when I see
my long-awaited, much-desired, jeans bag.
Cost? 2 brass rings (about a dollar).
Recycling at its best!
Great way to start the New Year!

oh i feel the breezes, these could remind you of a fringy scarf...or grass swaying in the water...how perfect to have a recycled bag that can bring on any sort of daydream!

i think that little bit of extra denim on the strap...that seam bit there? maybe it wants some beads? or a found object dangling a bit??

It is looking great - and I wish you that you would carry always nice things in it.

This bag turned out great. The plaid in the appliqué has a beautlful effect. Happy New Year, Nadia.

I am working on a BORO quilts study wit the students in the Textile Design Program at the community college where I teach. Using some old denims in the collage pieces, I have multiple fronts and backs from jeans I have cut the legs off from...

This is a stunning use of YOUR jeans! Thank you for sharing...
