Jeans to wristlet!

12 comments
I think I have managed to use every part of my hubby's jeans!! I converted the back pockets into a wristlet. Had some difficulty with the zip. Somehow it ended up very bulky at the ends and I had so much trouble sewing it up!! Any advice? Not sure whether my zip was too long....


Now I just need to figure out what to do with the top part of my hubby's jeans  :-)



Legless jeans or hotpants? :-)

Cut out the bits for the wristlet. Zipper is also recycled!

Any sewing experts to advise me how to get rid
of the bulk at the end? Had difficulty sewing through it too.

  2. Cute, little wristlet!! Looks great with the added flowers. I find zips on little purses are often too bulky at the ends. The thick fabric will make this more so. You can't see this in the pics. A great upcycle!!!

  3. I make a lot of bags by recycling jeans - I raise money for charity by selling them. If you would like some ideas, check out my bloc. LIke the wristlet - you must have a really strong machine to cope with all the layers. I tend not to even attempt sewing through seams!

  4. Agy,
    I know what you are talking about with the zipper ends. I've been sewing for almost 50 years and still have trouble with it. I've tried many ways to make the bulk at the ends disappear but to no avail.
    I've looked at others' sewing blogs to see how they manage it. But they usually skip right by this part in their tutorials so I feel it is a universal problem.
    I do, however, think you have done a fine job and the end result is so cute and fashionable.Good job!---Mary

    1. Hi Mary, thank you for your lovely comments. Let's hope I can find a solution on the bulk ends soon. I don't want to break so many needles!
