I have not been updating my blog lately, reasons being i was too lazy to do it lol but since i got hooked on pinterest, i have been more inspired to do more sewing and creating.
First, i cut both legs off of the jeans, cut them into rectangles, measured them and cut the leftover fabric the same size.
i also cut out the back pockets of the jeans and sewed them onto the fabric in the front. sewed two loops on both sides for a strap.
Then sew the sides and bottom of both the fabric and the lining (the black jeans), using the boxed corner technique, made the boxed corners 8 inches wide. then sewed the zipper onto the fabric and lining. last, i sewed the waist band of the jeans onto the bag as handles.
this whole project only took me about a few hours counting cutting out fabric.
see the corduroy pants? lol
there u have it, a cheap overnight bag! the dimensions: W 34inches, H 18 inches, D 8 inches.
you can also make it sturdy by including interfacing. make it fluffy by adding a layer of batting.
