More Denim, Christmas Presents and Girls Day Out

Continuing with Jennys Denim Challenge...
With the left over denim in my old jeans I have made this lunch bag.
I have used Insul-bright for the wadding inside the bag which is an insulated lining.
This should keep what's inside hot or cold as the case maybe.
My jeans had these great pockets on them and I really wanted to include one on the bag for smaller items (and also because I just love little hidey hole pockets!).
I also found these great snaps which were in keeping with the denim jeans look.
Another early Christmas present is this great little gathered clutch purse. It was quick to make up and is the perfect size for all your bits and pieces in your hand bag!
You can find the tutorial for this little bag here.

These are the last stitcheries for my Girls Day Out quilt...
This means I can finally start to put it all together!!
Woo Hoo!!!
Hope you are all having a wonderful, productive week.
Teresa xx

I just LOVE that lunch bag, what a fabulous idea to incorporate the pocket on the back. I might have to have a play around with some of my old jeans too ;o)!!! That's a cute little pouch as well ... where did you find that adorable zipper pull??!!?
Hugs,
Joy :o)

Love the lunch bag! The pocket gives it a little something extra doesn't it? Love the little pouch, perfect colour combos, and that little zipper pull is adorable!

I am looking forward to seeing your GDO put together too. It is a beautiful quilt. Love all your denim projects - some clever ideas. And thanks for sharing the source of the clutch bag tutorial, think I need to make one of those too.

Linda said...

I love the lunch bag...great idea! I made a wind sock out of an old pair of jeans a few years back, but I never thought of using some old ones for bags. You've given me some inspiration. Thanks! I love the close up of the teddies. Precious!

What a clever cookie you are, Teresa! Lovely projects. The gathered clutch has been on my "to-make" list for a while and your lunch bag is such a great idea. Did you design the pattern? Hope you are having a great weekend.

fiona said...

Hi Teresa - I am enjoying your blog and your ideas - using old jeans is such a good idea..... I have been looking for insulbright to use but have had no luck - can you share where you get this from? Happy stitching.....

ledamewood said...
