I've had a couple posts about making things with old denim jeans lately.... well, here is the latest little simple thing Felicity and I did. We used a pocket from an old pair of my jeans to make a cute little girl purse.
I just cut around the pocket on the jeans, completely removing the front and back of the pocket, leaving all seams attached so that the sides and bottom were closed up.
Then I hot glued each end of a long strand of lace inside of it giving her a little handle. Felicity loves her little purse. She likes to carry little toys and snacks and things in it and sometimes she just carries it by itself. I love how sometimes the simplest little things can make a toddler so happy!
Her hair is also finally long enough to do pig-tails! She used to not like me messing with her hair but now she loves me fixing it up like this. There are bows like the ones in her hair available in my online store: www.InspiredByFelicity.com
Here's another shot of her running around with her pocked purse, unfortunately the pic caught the back-side of it which isn't quite as pretty.
Her are links to some other children's things I've made with my old jeans lately.
