Got old jeans? Everybody does. If you have an old pair of jeans and you could use a new bag, look no further than the Upcycled Jean Bag. It's a great, thrifty sewn project. If your jeans no longer fit in the waist, then this is the perfect sewing tutorial to follow. You'll need the top part of the jeans to make this DIY bag in addition to some fabric scraps. Denim is nice and sturdy, so you'll make a bag that will last for a while. People will be asking you where you got your cool bag and you can brag that you made it all by yourself.
