Little Princess Bag

Hello Friends

Today I have a Little Princess bag to share with you.
I love upcycling jeans to make totes and handbags.    
I always buy new jeans to create my bags with so if they become gifts they are always new. 

My Little Princess bag sports a long handle, ribbed top which is cool today, 
pink ribbons and these adorable little buttons I purchased for just this little bag.  
The long handle is fabric covered with pink ribbed lace. 
 I couldn't get this perfectly lined up but it came out pretty good I think.

I plan to put this bag in a give-away on my blog,
 so tell me if you think someone you know would like it.  
I love to hear from you.  

My daughter always loves it when mom makes her something that nobody else has. 
 She always thinks it "cool" that she has an original just like she is.

My bags aren't perfect but everyone is made with love and joy.
I love sewing but I can't use a pattern for nothing.  
My mother could not read or write but could sew like crazy, so I learned from her, 
and today I still can't use a pattern.  Mom sewed by looking at something and
she could just recreate it, it was pretty "cool" to watch.  
I'm not as good as mom was but I do love to sew.  

If you want to make one of these you will need:
New Jeans size of your choice.  $15
Lace - a large roll     $6 to $8
Inner fabric for handle $4
Ribbons  $2
Buttons or decorations of your choice  $4
Sewing Machine

Till we meet again,
