This little tote is recycled from one leg of an old pair of jeans. Recycling or "upcycling" is a great way to give new life to old clothing. I like to do projects to use up all of the jeans, from top to bottom. One great thing about recycling is that you can use the structure already built in to the original garment. This makes for a faster completion time on your project, but also preserves the details, as well as the quirks and memories from the original piece of clothing. You can add embellishments to give your finished product maximum personality.

I Love any pattern that I can use to recycle jeans! With all my teenage grandkids, there is plenty of perfectly good jeans to "recycle". I have made to purses with this pattern and they turned out great.

Great way to upcycle jeans and you can add so many different embellishments. It's great!
