My Booty Bag.....

Well, Another project completed........
I made this little bag from a pair of little girls jeans, probably about a size 4 or 5. This is the front......
The back.....
I put my cell phone in the pocket....cute!


I made the strap from the legs that I cut off.....
I put a piece of cardboard inside the bottom so that it would stand up straight.....
And used hot pink thread to match what was already there.....


I had to sew the front pockets shut, they were too droopy and didn't look right.


I will make a bigger one from some women's jeans, when I get a chance. I saw these with the flowers and the pink stitching and I just couldn't resist!
I hope you are not getting sick of all my crafting, I did get to go to Brimfield Antique Fair and I have lots of pictures to show.
'Til next time, Love ya, Jean
