Check out this video to learn how to turn an old pair of jeans into a stylish handbag.

All you need is a pair of jeans, which is for the outside of the bag, and a striped cotton dress shirt for the lining.

American Overlook described how the life hack is done:

Simply cut one leg off and then fold it over itself, so you can make sure the other leg is cut at the same length.

She then cuts open the crotch area as well as the bulky seam line where the pant legs were sewn together. Next she turns the pants inside out. With a ruler, she draws a line as close to the zip as possible so she can sew it with the machine. Then she sews on the lines that were drawn. She cuts off the extra piece past where she just sewed.

With the front pockets facing up, she lines up the bottom seems and prepares to sew the legs areas shut to close up the bottom of the denim handbag.
