This Denim Tote would require just an old denim, two belts and 45 mins to be created. So let’s get started…

Materials Required:
• Old Pair of Jeans
• Two Small Belts
• Thread and Needle
• Three types of Beads
• Inch Tape and Chalk
• Fabric Glue
• Pencil and Scissors

• Measuring from the bottom with the inch tape mark a point with the chalk at a distance of 14 inches. Draw a straight line at the mark with the chalk.

• Cut both the legs of the pant at the line with scissors.

• Open both the separated parts of the pants by cutting them at the sides. (See Pic 2)

• Overlap the opened parts and stitch them together from inside using the thread and needle. It would take the shape of a bag.

• Decorate these flowers by stitching on them the different beads that we had taken, in any pattern of your choice.
