Luz Patterns crochet and sewing upcycled denim purse 200
This upcycled denim purse pattern has come out after I have made many of this bags I decided they were a bit sad and they needed a bit of colour! in comes the crochet mandala! I love the colours and the combination of crochet and denim!.
Upcycling projects with jeans is my favorite thing to do and bags are a great useful item to make and use over and over, denim works beautifully for bags! enjoy it!
The bag measures 17.5 inches wide by 14.5 inches tall, the handle has a 23 inches drop, the mandala is 11 inches in circumference.
