From Pocket to Purse

Denim is such a durable material.  Usually the knees in my jeans wear out faster than any other part of them–the waistband, pockets, and hems last forever!  Laura from Laura Kelly’s Inklings took advantage of this durability in this cute refashioning project.


Laura basically turned a pocket from an old pair of jeans into a coin purse.  She simply cut the pocket out of the back of the jeans, flap and all.  She embellished it with buttons from her own collection and some embroidery thread.  It’s a cute and easy project that would be perfect for making with kids during Spring Break, this year!
