I’ve been saving some old garments that I cannot bear to part with. One of those items being my favourite ‘FatFace’ Jeans. I adored these, but sadly no longer fitted. I’ve been hanging on to them and glad I did. I went for the chop on Sunday, and they have been turned into this fabulous ‘Good-to-Go’ Messenger.

It is surprising how much fabric you have to play with out of a pair of old jeans. I used some of my retro caravan fabric for the flap and a plain blue lining. As this bag is for me, I thought I would keep in plain, just in case hubby ends up carrying it – it could be unisex. I also kept the label from the back of the jeans and added as a feature to the side of the bag.
