Upcycled Denim Zippered Accessory Bag

With some of the leftover salvaged denim from this tote bag, and another fun vest panel in a school theme, and of course a zipper, I made another handy little quilted accessory bag which would be perfect for a teacher or anyone who likes apple/school themed things. Take a look...

Upcycled Denim Zippered Accessory BagCute, don't you think?

This bag is bigger than the other zippered accessory bags I made before. I like to use up every inch possible of any scrap fabric I have, so I made this bag as big as I could with these pieces of denim and the zipper I had. It measures 9 by 4 inches on the boxed bottom, 8 inches high, 12 inches from seam to seam at the top and the handle extends 6 inches from the side of the bag. This one will be heading over to my Etsy shop along with the denim tote bag which is already there. These little bags are so fun to make, and I love creating useful things from fabric that was destined for the trash, because there is still so much life left in sturdy denim and I'm such a Frugal Franny! What can I say? I don't like to waste things! Nothing wrong with that, is there?

Happy Stitching!

  • Mary Grace...I LOVE that little accessory bag...so adorable! Do you ever put any pockets on the inside? Don't I sound like a knitter? LOL!
    Have a great weekend!

  • So cute - perfect for a teacher. There is nothing wrong with being a Frugal Franny - I am one also. I think it has to do with the way I was raised - we never had much money and thought it was a "sin" to waste!
