Upcycled Jeans Handbag & Featured on UK Handmade


So this week I have been mainly chopping up jeans!  I had a request from a follower asking whether I created in denim and this got me thinking.  I retrieved some old jeans destined for the charity shop and decided to put them in my handbag protection programme!  They now no longer resemble their former selves and look a lot nicer even if I do say so myself.  I have completed the bag with a chiffon fabric brooch in my favourite colours of brown and blue, what do you think?  I am definitely going to have to make one for myself and I fear hubbys jeans are crying out to be made into something pretty....

On another note over at UK Handmade they have posted about designer bag maker Louis Vuitton being told off for claiming that their bags are handmade, what do you think? mmm.. Have a look here to view the full article and check out one of the bags featured.

It's a great bag Elissa. I think you're work is getting much more coherent and the quality looks great. Nice feature too!
