    Buying new denium to make lunch bags is not repurrposing Blue Jeans!!! the link for instructions to repurpose blue jeans clearly states to purchase new denium from store, gives size of fabric needed!!!! It is very simple to look at the lunch bag, see how a leg of jeans is easily used for making the lunch bag however this is not good advertising for Using Items That Exist In Ones Home To Repurpose!!!!!
    Niw have to check iut all other ideas to see how many are falsly stated.

      While the link follow through might say that, I completely agree that you can easily take an old pair of denim that is not being worn anymore and use that. I liked the overall idea which is why I included it. Have a great day!
