I've been cutting up old jeans, hoping to make a denim quilt one day.
Somewhere in the back of my mind, I remembered seeing denim pants
used as gift bags. I decided to sew some up.
However, denim isn't the most *Christmaslike" kind of fabric.
I found some old fabric; I think I might've bought it the first year I was married.
I know, it's silly that I kept it, but I don't have lots of Christmas fabric, so I'd stashed it away.
I lined my little denim bag with it. It was very easy to do.
Don't look too closely at the sewing though!
Adding a bow...and now we have a homemade Christmas bag.
Great for putting a little gift or a few goodies in :-)
I made this one quickly, to use for a gift. I think it probably took 15 or 20 minutes, including cutting.
It's reversible too :-) You don't have to line them,
and any fabric and ribbon would work.
A little applique or embroidery on the front would be pretty too.

Have a wonderful weekend my friends!
