About This Class

This class is a combination of creativity and recycling.
I am passionate about recycling. It can take many forms.  For many of us our experience with recycling is putting our plastic, glass and paper in a recycle bin and taking it out to the curb.  In this class we will go beyond that passive recycling.
You will use your creativity to recycle a pair of your old jeans. Instead of taking them to the thrift store, you will give your jeans a new life. You are going turn an old pair of jeans into a little denim purse/tote bag for yourself.  In fact, one pair of jeans can yield up to 4 little purses.  One for you, and 3 for gift giving.  Who doesn't like a handmade gift?

This class is suitable for the beginner sewer as well as more advanced.  It's intended to spark your creativity by using materials you already have on hand.
