Here's a little recycle project. One of B.'s favorite pair of jeans got a hole in the knees and so we cut them off and made them into shorts for the summer since they still fit. Well, part of her favorite part about the jeans was it had some fun embroidery on the hem. So we used that piece and turned it into a little bag for her.
I sewed up the cut end. The hem became the top of the bag. And we attached a little piece of ribbon that she picked out and used it for the handle. Voila!! Little bag for a little girl--and very minimal sewing.
