Check it Out! Last week I was working with denim and created my Dyed Denim Wrapped Gift Bucket. This week I was trying to come up with something to craft and realized I had some leftover denim pieces. I love using denim to create bags because you can bling them up in so many ways. I had a ton of different denim bags before the fire, but not one of them made it out and I have been wanting to make some more!
My daughter is constantly looking for a place to set her iPod while it is charging, so I decided to make her a charging station from some upcycled jeans.
My supplies for this project were super simple:
- 2 Pockets cut off some old jeans
- Denim trim from the left over leg
- Felt Embellishment
- Hot glue with fabric glue sticks
To start I heat up my glue gun and load up my fabric glue sticks. Then I laid one of the jean pockets face down on my flat surface. I attached my lace around the side and bottom edges of the pocket as shown with the hot glue and then attached the handle. My handle is a piece of jean seam that was cut from the hem of the leg. I cut the length of handle just long enough so the pocket would hang just beneath the charger plug in. I then glued the other pocket on face up. To finish it off I glued on my felt embellishment.
I love the way this little bag looks and it is so functional too. You can check out a bunch of other denim bags I made a few years ago on this Make It Monday post HERE. See how I used other parts of jeans to make different bags.
