How long can a pair of jeans last?

Number one son appeared yesterday to pick up his favourite pair of jeans after I had mended them for the umpteenth time. My sewing machine does a good job in darning the worn areas but I have told him that if there is a next time then it will have to be to convert them into a pair of shorts.

This reminded me of a pair of his old jeans that I had used to make into a craft tote bag. I cut the legs off, used part of one to make a base and the handles and hey presto....somewhere else to store my craft stuff. The pockets are already there so it was a relatively straightforward project.

Now what can I do with the other leg? Watch this space!!!

Hi Lili
This bag is fantastic. You have to make one for me. Do you need a pair of old jeans, I can provide you one. This will be so useful for me to use at my work place. All in one place. No dropping, dripping, falling of stuff!!!
Love seema
