This vintage style Purple Floral recycled jeans "Traveling Pants Purse™" was handmade from upcycled jeans donated from your new BFF Pamela! This purse has several true vintage features including three fabulous vintage buttons, a vintage flower pin, and a vintage hanky with crochet trim. A size SMALL, this purse measures 16" X 4.5" X 10", and is sewn from Pamela's old size 8 jeans. This purple, lavender, white, and powder blue-trimmed purse is fully lined and includes one large divided internal pocket in a coordinating fabric with purple and white polka ribbon edging. Additionally, there are four deep external jean pockets that will have you in organizational heaven!

The purse comes complete with a hang-tag that includes Pamela's bio:


Pamela's love of purple and flowers, and (and maybe yours too!) is mirrored by the lovely white and purple floral fabric featuring wild violets that is used for the full lining. The purse front contains white and purple floral trims, part of a vintage hanky with purple and white crochet trim held to the purse with a beautiful purple floral button with gold trim.The fly-front flap has two spectacular vintage buttons that are very ornate and gold-toned.The purple suede belt is absolutely luscious with a gold buckle and totally rocks! A vintage pin that is a spray of flowers contains rows of rhinestone and is included with your purse. The purse back has three layered purple and white ribbon trims on each pocket and purple drop-beads, plus a unique purple button made in Thailand.

There’s lots of bling on this Traveling Pants Purse™” that may not show up well in all the photos. The "Pamela" purse front features ten 4 mm Swarovski crystals --five distributed evenly on each side. These crystals are hot-fixed and will not come off.

Though Pamela doesn’t have a flat bottom…the purse fashioned from her jeans sure does! The REINFORCED flat bottom is custom cut and individually fitted in order to prevent the kitchen sink and everything else you own from rolling to the middle. This is essential for your happiness. Guess what? Nobody else loves you this much…just check out other jeans purses!!

A magnetic closure keeps your valuables safe while the purse hangs from your shoulder on a 34.5-inch strap that is top-stitched with purple and white polka dot ribbon.By removing the belt the purse is fully hand-washable, so it will serve you faithfully for years to come. Please note that shipping price includes tracking AND insurance!

If you want to be a REAL fashionista, pair the purse with a coordinating scrapbooked checkbook cover (sold separately in my shop and sample in photo #5). A Traveling Pants Purse™ and checkbook cover together...OMG fabulous!

If this purse isn't quite right for your fashion sensibility, you can still party with a different BFF. Check out my shop for additional candidates.

WARNING: Traveling Pants Purses™ may be addictive! See what one of my customers said:

“I loved my bag so much that I bought a second one, as well as a smaller size for each of my granddaughters. They are so unique and well made. So many people I don't even know have stopped me and commented on how cool my bag is.”
