Simple Jean Purse
Here is a super easy tutorial to make a purse from a kid's size jean skirt. You can use an adult or teen size if you like, any style, color & type of ribbon you like, add other accessories if you want & make this as elaborate as you'd like. But this is a very quick & simple project you can do with ultra heat bond, some ribbon, a flat iron & scissors.
Our super cute skirt that we will turn into a purse!
Our supplies- flat iron with adjustable temp, scissors, ribbon, ultra heat bond, thread(ended up not using).
Our heat bond ultra, to make sure we have a good, strong hold. Since we are working with denim, I didn't want take any chances. The package says to use an iron on medium, but since I'm using my flat iron with an adjustable dial- I cranked it up full blast to 350. I still followed the directions & it worked exactly as it should.
Use your heat bond all along the bottom seam, so you have a nice tight seal.
I started with my heat bond on the ribbon, finished it on the jeans.
Make sure you get a good, strong bond on the inside. No sewing needed, like I'd hoped! The heat bond package actually states, do not sew through the product. So if it does not bond, try again.
Our finished project! Isn't it cute? & super easy!!
