“My girls love it! so fun!!! easy to understand for little girls too! We also used webbing for straps and used shorts too!”
The Girl Purse is a quick and easy purse made from a pair of old jeans. The pockets on the original jeans become places for holding treasures in the new purse. This pattern includes instructions for making two types of belts. You can choose the basic cotton belt, or a knit belt with a lovely, curled, or "lettuce" hem. And yes, you can make that hem on your sewing machine! The pattern shows you how.

One pair of old jeans (I prefer children’s sizes for the Girl Purse, but teen or adult sizes will also work). If you don’t have any, they’re pretty easy to find at thrift stores, and you can often find them with fun embellishments already on the pockets. Just be sure to look for a pair with belt loops if you are going to include the belt.
Seam Gauge and Measuring Tape
4” wide by about 40” long piece of cotton OR 2” wide by about 40” piece of knit for the belt (these pieces might need to be a little longer if you start with adult-sized jeans)
Tube turner (if you are making the cotton belt)

super easy love it!
Fabulous way to use up old jeans! We even went to the op shop to get more =D
I have recently started a new business using upcycled denim to make baby bibs, aprons and purses. I cannot wait to add these adorable purses to my inventory. I have reviewed the instructions and they seem fairly straightforward.
Great way to use outgrown jeans. Very clear instructions.
