Denim Tote Bag

Tote bags in undoubtedly a namesake for handy baskets that could be used absolutely anywhere. Upcycle your used jeans into this amazing tote bag and take advantage of the durable denim fabric once again!

Making bags from old jeans – This is one DIY project that appeals to those of us who hoard old jeans. There so many old jeans in my cupboard belonging to all four of us in our family- some torn in all the wrong places, some not fitting anymore in girth, some too short, some not fashionable enough. All of them waiting for some easy recycling ideas – to be made into new and beautiful denim bags.

During the weekend, what better way to honor it than to make a reusable tote from an old pair of jeans so you can celebrate in style! I have 3 active boys, and you can imagine how many pairs of jeans they go through. Instead of getting rid of them I upcycle them into projects like this tote bag. It’s a sustainable approach to sewing and a practical project. You can use this for grocery runs to beach trips and everything in between. Get the details below on how to make your own Reusable Tote Bag from Upcycled Jeans.
