Primroses with Calico Jeans

Last week I received a lovely gift from my friend, Karleen. It's so creative and beautiful that I even re-wrapped the gifts in the white paper wrap and have left everything 'as is' for awhile yet so I can enjoy the packaging. Karleen took an old pair of jeans and stitched together a bag which contains the contents. Calico in bright colors is braided together to make handles. Tissue paper, colorful primroses, and gifts wrapped in white with color coordinated markers and ribbon complete the ensemble. I think it's so cute and just had to share this idea! Enjoy!


  1. What a wonderful recycle idea and what a wonderful friend. Clarice

  2. Isn't it fun, Clarice? The bag Karleen gave me was made from a small women's or child's size jeans. I think that toddler size jeans would make cute smaller bags as well. Wouldn't a series of them be cute for a centerpieces for a casual spring tea?

  3. I love this idea, and your idea for a Spring tea using them! This will be cute to use baby jeans, so we can keep them forever!
