EACH OF THESE PURSES/TOTES/DIAPER BAGS IS A ONE-OF-A-KIND CREATION AND THEREFORE IS SUBJECT TO VARIATIONS.

This Purse is 10" wide at the top, 13" wide at the bottom, and 9" tall, with 26" straps (13" drop). This purse is made from a pair of Jean Company Little Arizona kids jean shorts. The red front pocket buttons were on the shorts and I added the other red accents. The back of the shorts did not have pockets so the red and white plaid pockets are an add-on. This is a really cute small purse!!

THESE WONDERFUL JEAN ITEMS ARE MADE FROM ASSORTED SIZES OF JEANS THAT HAVE BEEN DISCARDED FOR ANY NUMBER OF REASONS. I WASH AND SANITIZE THEM BEFORE CUTTING THEM UP FOR USE.

THEY ARE CUT SO THAT ALL OF THE POCKETS ARE STILL USEABLE – FRONT AND BACK. THERE ARE NO POCKETS INSIDE, SINCE JEANS HAVE LOTS OF OUTSIDE POCKETS TO USE. THOSE OUTSIDE POCKETS CAN BE USED FOR CELL PHONES, IPODS, EAR BUDS, CREDIT CARD HOLDERS, WALLETS OR ANY OTHER THING YOU CAN THINK OF TO PUT IN THEM. THE PURSES ARE DECORATED WITH VINTAGE BUTTONS, LACE, RIBBONS AND MATERIALS THAT I RESCUE FROM RESALE SHOPS, GARAGE SALES AND FRIENDS AND FAMILY.

ORIGINALLY, I STARTED MAKING THESE AS TOTES FOR THE FARMERS’ MARKET THAT I DID ON SATURDAY MORNING, BUT EVERYONE STARTED TO BUY THEM FOR PURSES!! EVEN THE REALLY BIG ONES WENT QUICKLY. ONE OF MY CUSTOMERS BOUGHT ONE BIG ONE FOR A DIAPER BAG FOR HER DAUGHTER AND OUTFITTED IT WITH ALL THE THINGS THE NEW BABY WOULD NEED. I THOUGHT THAT WAS A GREAT IDEA!!

ALL OF THE TOTES ARE WASHABLE WITH YOUR JEANS AND ARE VIRTUALLY INDESTRUCTABLE. SOME ARE SEWED TO FRAY AND SOME ARE EDGED TO KEEP THEM FROM FRAYING. DEPENDS ON MY MOOD ON THE DAY I MAKE THEM. THE STRAPS ARE MADE GENERALLY FROM DENIM FROM THE JEAN, AND THE DECORATIVE TIE BELTS ARE MACHINE WASHABLE ALSO. ACCENTS ON THE PURSE BODY ARE DECORATIVE STITCHING, BUTTONS, LACE, BRAIDING OR ANYTHING THAT STRIKES MY FANCY ON THE DAY I AM DESIGNING THEM.
