Don't toss those Jeans Upcycle

Several years ago I realize my husband and son were tossing out jeans that had become too worn in the area of the knees. I felt it was a waste to throw out all that good denim for a few worn areas. I started experimenting with making purses and bags from the old jeans. I did research on the web to see how others reused jeans, but most of the bags and purses had flaws. So i started designing my own patterns, to make bags and purses I would use. I did a trial run selling some of the bags at the local Farmers Market and the results were encouraging. With the number of bags and purses increasing I decided to try an Etsy store.
