rofl, that is so sweet of you, but if someone sent me any denim scraps my husband would raise the roof. lol...he has to put up with my 'anything that can be reused should be' mentality. My mother raised us this way because she grew up dirt poor and that's the way she was raised. they lived in a tar paper shack with no plumbing. there was no money for extras and there was no waste. my great grandparents on my father's side were like that, so its on my dad's side too. only it wasnt quite as drastic on my father's side. waste not, want not. all of the fleece scraps from the beds i made went for chemo caps for a woman i know with breast cancer. the way i designed my pattern there were no flannel or calico scaps, but there were long strips of fleece because of the width differences in the fabrics..i know, a bit obsessive, but i promise i'm not preaching.

oh yeah. purses made from old blue jeans were popular when i was in jr high. I cant tell you how many I made for myself and my friends. I was constantly sewing things. i started sewing my playclothes (and barbie clothes out of scraps, too) when i was 7.

wow, $45! thats a lot for a recycled pair of pants! you guys could do that at home waaaaay cheaper! i dont think you did anything wrong posting the link. it is not a new idea, so it can't be copyrighted by her. back in the 80's all the magazines were full of directions how to do that. If anyone wanted one of those, i could probably oblige. not for $45 dollars, though, sorry to disappoint you guys, but i would have to charge less! lol

sorry to post right after my last, but i happened to notice when i was showing my hubby that carrier, that while she may have double hemmed the bottom to reinforce it, she didnt put ANY gussets in for the comfort of her dog. that purse would be terribly uncomfortable for a dog to stand in. it makes the fringe look good, but if i made them they would not be able to have that fringe because they would have gussets to flatten the bottom for our babies to stand on a flat surface instead of standing in a crack. that poor dog

sorry to be so critical, i just wanted to be sure if anyone makes one at home they put a gusset in
