DIY December Craft by @Scubagirl
Cool tweens by apparena

Here’s what you will need:

  • An old pair of jeans — find some with large back pocket that button or that fasten with velcro
  • A cute, long ribbon
  • Needle and thread (or a sewing machine that will handle denim)
  • Scissors
  • Embellishments, like sequins, buttons and beads

Here’s what you will do:

Step 1: Cut out the back pockets of the jeans.

Step 2: Measure the ribbon so that it’s long enough to go over your
shoulder so that the bag hangs at your waist, like in the picture, and
cut it.

Step 3: Sew the ribbon onto the pocket. If there is a flap like the
one in the picture, sew it under the flap. If not, sew it onto the
back. I think you might be able to hot glue gun it, but I haven’t
tried that, so you might want to stick with sewing it.

Step 4: Embellish it! If you don’t want to, you don’t have to.

Step 5: Load it up and wear it! These work as great phone holders, but
they also work for small things like change.
