I have made so many blue jean purses it is crazy. I made my first one when in 3rd grade. I've recently made more of the crochet purses popular back then and have been seriously thinking about making another blue jean purse and send it to my niece.

I am looking for a 70 thing because my 3rd grade class is having a 70's day. I can't wait to see my friends on that day!

My dad actually made me one out of his old jeans as a school bag in 1977 and HE embroidered Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse on each of the Levi pockets. Then my mom crocheted the strap out of pink yarn and I thought I was so cool in the 1st grade!

I remember women carrying these while wearing the ultra-short jean cutoffs that men and women wore in the early 70s. The purses hung almost as long as the shorts and it always looked to me like they had two pairs of cutoffs at once.

Remember this one? It was premade and advertised in magazines like TEEN and CO-ED. I had one like this.
