New Jean Genies

I've been very busy cutting up unloved jeans and turning them into something much more practical!

Jean Genies are made from recycled jeans combined with offcuts of curtain or furnishing fabrics. They have a single, wide, soft strap that is long enough to sit either on your shoulder or across your body.
They have 2 or 3 internal pockets for those fiddly things that always drop to the bottom, such as keys and phones, and plenty of space in the middle for the rest of the junk (sorry, 'useful items') that a girl needs in her bag.

There are also two pockets on the front and rear of the bag for even more bits and pieces. Just don't forget which pocket your keys are in!
Everything is kept under wraps by a large flap fastened down with a vintage button.
Charcoal Rose
Supersoft charcoal denim and vintage cotton chintz.
Lined with the cotton chintz, two internal pockets.

Rock the Kasbah

Dark navy blue denim matched with a vibrant red floral chintz. Lining red chintz. Two internal pockets. Outer pocket on the reverse of the bag is made from a heavily embroidered denim patch.

Chocolate and Chilli - SOLD
