Sew Powerful Purse #7

Denim lovers, denim jean lovers & upcycle lovers, here is a purse I created by upcycling some denim jeans. I was experimenting and trying some new things on this denim flap. I sewed the denim scraps and quilted each section down, which really helped flatten those thick seams at the same time. I wanted to try adding a few belt loops on the flap as a different embellishment. I also threaded a wide ribbon that has metallic threads on it through the belt loops. I then added rivets through the belt loops and ribbon to hold it all in place so the ribbon would slide around. I like the result. Kind of Shabby Chic would you say? (Donating this to Sew Powerful of course).

Happy Scrappy Denim Flappy. With ribbon, rivets, a couple of buttons and it's quilted too.

Back side I added a slip jean pocket that I first appliqu├ęd a heart to.

Lining view.

Side view with added rivet.

Have a Happy Scrappy Sewing Day, week, month, and/or year!
