This Patchwork Jean Bag is a DIY gem, it’s so simple to make because it involves only minimal sewing, the rest is glued with either a hot glue gun, Fabri-Tac, or Liquid Stitch. I decided to make this little Upcycled Denim Bag for my niece who is turning 12 this week. I first cut one back pocket out of the jeans, then cut a section of the jeans thigh. You leave it attached, unlike most instructions for this type of project. Set the pocket on there as a guide, but the pocket isn’t glued on yet, it’s just there to help you decide where you want to cut. There is no real wrong way to do this denim bag and it looks perfect with a casual outfit and still very functional for light or heavy shopping. The instructions are simple and easy to follow in the excellent video tutorial, here is a small taste of what the project entails.

Then the instructions will tell you how to add your denim pockets and how to construct and attach your lining and also how to install a magnetic clasp closure for your attractive patchwork denim tote.
