Upcycled denim lunch bag – video tutorial

Have you got a pair of jeans that doesn’t fit anymore? For this project we’ll need 14″ of one leg or a tube that is 14″ long by your preferred width.

You’ll also need some hexies to embellish the bag though this step is optional and some velcro.

Download the hexies templates and print a sheet of the 1 1/4 inch hexagons (pdf).

So let’s get to it.

My book Turnabout Patchwork

“Turnabout Patchwork. Simple quilts with a twist” is all about playing with blocks – making a block, slicing it up, and turning or repositioning the pieces to make a completely different block (sometimes two smaller blocks) to yield endless quilt tops.

Buy individual chapters of my book

Now that my publisher is going out of business I have bought the rights to publish my book. Now you can download individual chapters. Each digital download is a bundle with 4 quilt patterns in it.

As well as the instructions and fabric needs to make the blocks you’ll find a section on quiltmaking basics at the end of the pattern that discusses:

  • Tools
  • Squaring up blocks
  • Borders
  • Assembly and quilting
  • Binding
