Recycle Denim Jeans ... Lunch Bag or Beach bag

Recycle your old jeans into Lunch or beach bags

Show off with style in the cafeteria or on the beach with this easy-to-make and easy-to-wash lunch bag / beach bag

Old pair of Jeans
Fabric scissors
Sewing machine or thread and needle
Patches, paint or buttons

To begin, cut a 12- to 16-inch section from a pant leg. Fold over a 1/2-inch strip around the top and sew it down to create a casing.

Through an opening left in the casing, thread a 3-foot length of cord and knot the two ends together.

To form the bag's bottom, cut another piece of fabric from the pants, about 1/2-inch larger than the leg's circumference. Turn the leg inside out and sew the two pieces together.

Customize the bag with patches, fabric paints or buttons
