I finally realized that I was never again going to fit into those skinny size 6 jeans. They were taking up space in my drawer for at least two years, and from time to time I'd stuff myself into them and try to convince myself that they were fine. I was having such a hard time giving them up, though. Then I conceived the idea of making something out of them - repurposing them rather than just putting them into the box for GoodWill. And since I have been enjoying making the Scallop Square die Rag Quilted Bags for several months, it dawned on me that a new bag would be the perfect end for my old jeans.
Thank you to everyone who visited my blog over the weekend and left such lovely comments. As promised, I've chosen a commenter to win some blog candy - and that winner is comment #46, Deana Smart. Deana, I'll be emailing you to see which of the prizes you want. And for everyone to enjoy a little eye candy, even if you didn't win the blog candy, here's a picture of the finished denim rag quilted purse.
