Recycled DIY Tinkerbell Bags
For those of you who have little girls and love Disney characters or some other popular character, this is a neat gift for them. Take a pair of little girl jeans that have some embellishment on the pockets and also on the legs. The picture features bags that were make out of Tinkerbell jeans. The small bag is made from the leg of the jeans. You cut off the leg allowing a least a couple of inches above the design. Hem the bottom of the jean and finish the top part of the leg by folding over 1/4 inch of the material twice to form a finished hem. Take another length of jean fabric 2 inches wide by however long you want the strap to be. Fold the edges inward once and then again to form a finished edge and sew along that. Attach the strap to the inside of the leg and zig zag over the top to secure it.
The larger bag is made by cutting the inside seam of the jeans and then sewing the front seam and then the back seam separately. You then sew the bottom edge of the jeans to make the bag. The straps are a little wider and you cut the width of the strap 4 inches and the length of the strap is whatever you want.
A great way to recycle jeans and use those cute jeans that maybe have a hole in the knee.
