I have a lot of Denim



I designed a new bag. The inspiration was that my ipad needed a home.

I used one pair of jeans to make this bag and actually, the cuff below, came from the scraps of that same pair of jeans. This leather is soooo soft and creamy...and I will be very sad when I have used it all up.

The front exterior has a functioning zipper that you can hide things in. Really. The other pocket is deep enough for business cards and of course a clicky pen works perfectly there. I used two vintage buttons on the bag, one functions as the closing mechanism and the other, merely decoration...but I think it looks great! Then of course the leather not only helps protect it is soft and inviting!

The interior of the bag is lined with red flannel fabric. Three pockets...one very roomy, one that is padded and holds the ipad nice and snug. I was having a hard time photographing the interior, as soon as I get a good shot...I'll post it here.

Great upcycled bag! I'm curious to see your interior shot, as I'm always having trouble with that!

so cute, what a fun bag! I love the leather accents. I would be interested in seeing the inside, too - did you use any kind of padding?

Wonderful bag!!!! I have a stash of old denim and some great thrift store leather skirts that I plan on getting creative with.

Well done!

Thanks for the comments! Duni are you have problems photographing the interior or getting the interior pockets made?

Carrie, I did use padding. The outer portion of the bag is padded with a heavy quilt batting and so is the interior pocket that holds the ipad. I have already traveled with this bag and it protected my ipad really well.

Old blue jean denim mixed with leather always parlays into something gorgeous in my eyes! I love combining those elements together sometimes,when I design my bags and cuffs as well....beautiful job! I love its simplicity and size....
