Hi There!

Little Bags from Blue Jean Shorts

Here's how I do it:

And with the rest of the pants you can make some awesomely cute shorts!
This is my favorite kind of "UP-Cycle" or "Recycle" project. Take a pair of pants your child, niece, grandchild, or friend has that fit good but are too short for pants anymore. Cut off the legs to make shorts. Add trimmings to the shorts and make the legs into tiny little bags.
Here's how I do it:

This is an easy project if you are even slightly sewing savvy. 
A quick upcycle took me about an hour for each bag/purse. And about 2 hours (includes hand stitching the waist band and pockets) for the shorts.  Happy Sewing!
