upcycled blue jeans clutch bag with hand embroidered anchor

It is summer, time for a bit of nautical touch, isn’t it? So, thinking of a casual clutch bag for a slow and easy evening walk, and looking at friend’s old and torn jeans… (Siniša, thank you for the jeans!) some blue embroidery thread later… jeans and anchor bag!

Love,

Mare

Anchor clutch bag is made from old blue jeans, giving the jeans their second life. It is decorated with an anchor that I hand embroidered in stem stitch with embroidery thread in two shades of blue and a bit of beige. It measures 30 cm by 17 cm, it is interfaced for firmness and shape and lined with blue and white stripes patterned cotton fabric. There is a pocket inside of the bag and the bag closes with magnetic snap closure.
