Repurposed Jeans Card Case How-To Tutorial by Cheryl Bosarge of Bayou Bags

How-To: Repurposed Jeans - Card Case

Here's what Cheryl had to say about her repurposed jeans card case:

You know those favorite jeans that you just can’t bear to throw out? I recently had a pair of those, which I wore and washed countless times, until the seat was worn nearly through. While renovating this house, they finally gave up the fight after too many ascents to the top of a ladder. At that point, I sadly retired those jeans, but I didn't throw them away.

I have several projects in mind for my jeans, and the first is a business card case. This could also be used as a coin purse if you choose a more secure fastener for the front.
