Description

I've always loved denim! What's not to love? It's attractive, durable, and only gets better with age (wish that was true for me!). I also love the idea of recycling and repurposing and am often on the lookout for a way to give something new life. When my sons were little boys, I often made them little suits out of old golf pants (plaid polyester, oh my!!!). I recently ran across something that inspired me and my stash of old blue jeans soon fell prey to a reconstruction obsession. I'm calling my inspiration "Bleu Redux (colors too!) by Grandma Rieta".

My mom belongs to the Red Hat Society and has a blast with those fun ladies! She's a bit difficult to buy for so when I saw the purple jeans and then the red ones, I knew where I was going with it. This bag is cute just the way it is, or you can bling it up. I included a picture of the one I made for my mom, but you're on your own with bling. She gets a lot of compliments on this when she goes to Red Hat events. Purple jeans are tough to find, but I will definitely make more of these as I come across the color.

It measures a roomy 14 inches (35.56 cm) high (about 26-27 inches [67.31 cm] including handles), by 17 inches (43.18 cm) wide, by 5 inches (12.7 cm) deep (approximately). The sturdy handles are long enough to carry the tote over your shoulder, but can also be carried like a purse. The bag is fully lined, has a magnetic snap closure, and three interior pockets, two are open and one closes with a 9" zipper to help keep things secure. There is also a recycled pocket on the back of the purse, which just happens to be perfect for a cell phone - super handy! The front and the back of the purse are different so you can turn it either direction for a totally different look.

Please be aware that due to the recycled nature of these bags, there may be some minor color or gradient variation between totes. I will do my best to represent these as accurately as possible but short of photographing each bag and listing it separately (which could get really cumbersome), I will do my best to describe these in "Variations" as needed.

I have several ideas for other "Bleu Redux" products and am excited to get busy on them. In the meantime, I hope you enjoy these totes!
