This project is very easy and doesn't require you to have advanced sewing skills. You can even use a needle and thread instead of a sewing machine if you don't have access to one. If you are going to attempt to sew this on your sewing machine, just be sure that the needle that's on your sewing machine is able to sew through tougher materials like jeans or leather. The needle will be a thicker gage than a normal sewing machine needle, and you may have to buy one if your machine doesn't come with one. For this tutorial video, she uses a needle and thread to sew up the bottom and side of the bag she's making. First of all, you just need to cut your jeans in half where the button and fly are. Then, sew the open edges together. Once that's done, you simply make a strap out of strips of leftover jean material which you braid together, and then fix the ends onto the inside of the bag. That's it, and you'll have a really cool purse or bag to carry all of your essentials in. The best thing is, this bag also has pockets because the jean pockets, both front, and back are included in the design. You can put your cell phone, maybe some pens and notes to keep handy in these pockets.
