New bag from old denim

Denim from old jeans: I can't send worn out jeans to the op shop. That's wrong. I can't just throw them out. That's wasteful. I see more bags in my future.
Black pinstripe (pockets and shoulder strap) from worn-out linen trousers:
Grey linen (side panels) is new, but left over from a jacket I made this Summer just gone. (Must photograph that jacket some time, not right now, it needs ironing)
The bag is made using Noodlehead's wonderful 241 Tote pattern. The instructions are clear and the bag comes together beautifully with no awkward fiddly-ness.

I like it a lot. Well done.

I could make myself such a bag but first I need to buy myself some new jeans. Unfortunately all the jeans I can find are s-t-r-e-t-c-h! What happened to 100% cotton denim? *sigh*
