A pair of old jeans
A piece of black cotton fabric for the lining
Needle and thread
A large button
1. Cut off the bottom part of the old jeans and cut open from the sides. Measure your desired size for the handbag and make a cardboard template. Use the template to cut out the denim pieces.
2. Sew the denim pieces to connect them along the wider sides and add a piece of black cotton fabric as the lining. Sew along the upper edge of the handbag to make some folds so that it looks like the shape of trapezoid. Cut out two denim strips, fold them in half and sew along the upper edges of the handbag. Tuck both sides of the handbag inward and secure the edges with thread.
3. Cut out two longer denim strips, fold them in half and sew along the upper edges of the handbag. Sew the cord and the large button on opposite sides of the handbag. Flip the cord over the opening of the handbag and secure on the button.
