PostSubject: Blue-Jean Book Bag   Mon Aug 24, 2009 12:04 pm

This quick sewing project makes it a cinch to turn old jeans into a rugged book bag.

Pair of jeans
Sewing machine or needle and thread
Cotton belt

Time needed: Under 1 Hour
1. Zip the jeans and turn them inside out. With a pair of fabric scissors (a parent's job), cut off both jean legs 3 inches from the crotch. Set aside. Next, fold the cutoff jeans, matching up the side seams as you would to press front and back leg pleats.

2. Using a sewing machine (or a close, even hand stitch), sew closed each leg opening 1 inch from the cut edge. Trim the denim 1/2 inch from the stitching.

3. Turn the jeans right-side out. For a handle, thread a cotton belt through the belt loops and tie the ends together.
