Ya know you have an old pair of jeans that you just can't seem to peel off your body, is beyond tattered at the knees, falling apart at the seams, and frayed beyond recognition. The only thing that even looks decent is the seat, right? Well, come on now, throw them away already!

Or really, being the great frugal re-user of all things, why not turn them into a denim purse? wikiHow has great step by step instructions on how to turn your denim jeans into a purse, complete with pictures. You will want a pair of jeans that is worthy of doing this awesome project and that you can accessorize to fit your personal style. Pick out a pair of jeans that isn't torn to bits and that will hold up to the many items that you carry with you on a daily basis. Adding beads, buttons, glitter, fringe, paint, or appliques will ensure you have a one of a kind purse that everyone will be asking about.

    I have not made one of these jean purses. When I was out shopping this week, I saw a lady with one and it was really cute. This would make a really nice gift for a birthday or Christmas.
