More denim


I know I've posted this before, but since there's an interest right now in what to make from denim, I thought I'd show it again. This bag is made from 1/2" strips of denim and is knitted using a circular needle. The handles are made using the 'seam' up the leg and are just braided together. Enlarging the picture will show that the top of the bag is the waistband.
It's not a process I would choose to do very often. Knitting with denim is rather hard on the hands I found. I love the end result though!

Love the end result of this - I can see how it would be hard on the hands and I have to protect mine as i occassionally have trouble with them - but I simply love the result - and it would wear like iron

Also I have just responded to your comment over on my blog

I don't remember the size of the waistband exactly...I just went through my stash til I found one that fit. Needles are an 8mm (USsize11) circulars.
