I think, at some those times when good branded jeans were worth its weight in gold are still live in memory. Happened that one jeans were bought for two and were worn in turn. Jeans to holes were worn out. However at many the hand was not raised to throw out "gold" full of holes. From a corner was taken, and wonderful transformations began. Most often women of fashion altered jeans in skirts or simply cut off them, turning into shorts. Though there were also more sophisticated transformations: bags, backpacks, jackets, purses, wall panels and polovichka.
Now such zealous relation to usual jeans seems to us strange. However some councils of those times can be adopted. I want to tell readers of InfoAdvisor.net as it is possible to make useful things of one old jeans. The things offered for tailoring three is a bag, and also a bag and pockets on a wall.
For production of a bag jeans, a cover from a cardboard box and something will be necessary for us for (a belt with a beautiful buckle, , pastes, etc.).
Let's begin with that we will cut off the top part of jeans. It will also represent bag "body". It is necessary to cut off two-three centimeters below than a lightning.
Now we turn inside out and we banish a line, having receded from edge about a half-centimeter, then we process edge.
Do not forget that the forward part of jeans are a little less than back. Therefore to avoid a distortion, think in advance where you "will hide" surplus. It is best of all to make some hardly noticeable "wrinkles" closer to the center of a product.
We turn the received preparation, so to speak, an end face and we put preparation so that the isosceles triangle turned out. The lateral seam of jeans has to halve the top corner.
The more you recede from its top, the wider the bag bottom will turn out. We draw a horizontal line. Its length will correspond to bottom width. Prostrachivayem on it a line.
We make the same operation and on the other hand.
The triangle basis – the bag bottom width if it less than four centimeters, a cardboard bottom it is possible not to do.
For production of a bottom we need a piece of cardboard. We cut out a rectangle, length and which width coincide with length and width of your preparation. From a bottom of a pant leg it is found two identical details, length and which width on half-centimeter is more, than at a piece of cardboard. We put them together, the face inside and prostrachivay from three parties. Now the turned-out pocket it is necessary to empty, insert into it a piece of cardboard and to zastrochit the fourth party. The bottom for your bag is ready. It is possible to insert it inside. Here your bag at this stage will look so.
Now we start handles. Their quantity, length and width entirely depend on your preferences and the size of jeans. Personally I like bags with two not really long handles. Will serve as material the same pant leg. We find handles of the necessary length and width.
Do not forget to make allowances for seams (about a half-centimeter).
It will be better to look if width of handles approximately coincides with width of a belt of jeans.
As each handle consists of two details, it is better to make a basting on lines of a pattern. Then at a vystriganiye of part will not be displaced relatively each other.
We cut off and smooth down allowances inside.
Prostrachivayem on the front. That end faces were well wrapped, cut off corners.
As a result two here such details turn out.
We sew handles to inside of a belt of jeans, it is desirable the strengthened seam.
The place of fastening of handles approximately coincides with a place of fastening of hlyastik on a belt.
We start a fastener. I do not love a lightning – they eternally jam and disperse at the most inappropriate moment therefore decided to make a fastener on a button. For this purpose I find a detail which width is equal to belt width, and length about ten centimeters. We process this detalka as well as handles. We do a loop and it is sewn to a belt of jeans by vertical seams from within. Watch that back hlyastik was accurately in the middle of the sewn detail.
The bag is ready.
I am a minimalist. I do not love embellishments, however thoughts on a decor of this handbag are available. We pass a belt, it is desirable that the buckle was bright and brilliant. Edges of pockets otstrachivay color threads or we paste on them pastes, it is possible to embroider something with beads also. Generally, everything depends on your imagination, a rukastost and taste.
Such sack can be useful to you or your child, for example, under footwear or some trifles. For its production you need the top part of a trouser-leg and a lace about 1 m long. We cut off a piece of a trouser-leg of the necessary length. I think, for you not a secret that pant legs become already to a bottom therefore this difference needs to be cleaned.
Prostrachivayem also we process edges. We bend the top part of a trouser-leg approximately on one centimeter and prostrachivay.
Do not forget to leave an opening. The drawstring into which it is necessary to insert a lace turned out. It is better to do it by means of a safety pin or a big office paper clip.
We put on a clip a lace.
The ends of a lace need to be leveled, tied a small knot, to carry out in a trouser-leg, to extend a small knot outside and to tack that were not displaced at a prostrachivaniye.
Prostrachivayem also we turn out a bottom.
We turn out on the face. The bag is ready. At desire it can be decorated with an embroidery or application.
This piece is simply irreplaceable in . It is possible to put any trifles in it: hairbrush, brush, shoe cream, keys and so forth. Hang up pockets on a wall near a mirror and you will have all necessary trifles near at hand.
For production of pockets the trouser-leg bottom, a piece of cardboard, a bright lace and a mouline thread will be necessary for you for ornament.
Let's begin with that we will insert a piece of a cardboard in a trouser-leg. It will give durability of our design. It will be better if you take a cardboard in tone to jeans or finishing as it it will be visible after cutting of pockets. Length and width of a cardboard have to be one centimeter less, than length and width of fabric preparation.
The trouser-leg bottom will be top of our panel. We sew a piece of a lace, so there that the loop turned out.
Then we do a marking on which we will banish lines – bottoms of future pockets.
Prostrachivayem. We do cuts approximately on half-centimeter is lower than the stitched lines.
Such pockets turn out here.
Now we start processing of edges of pockets. It is possible to make it a decorative obmetochny seam.
Or it is possible to sew a lace a usual seam of an overstitching.
The bottom of a product does not need to be processed. It is better to fluff up it, having pulled out cross threads by means of a needle. Pockets are ready.
I hope, my simple councils will help readers of InfoAdvisor.net to get rid of old jeans and to get instead of them new useful things.
