if you want your purse lined, cut out the lining about the same size as the purse. If you arrange it right and can put a fold at the bottom of the purse lining, you save some effort because you won't need to sew across the bottom of the lining!
This pocket calls for one scrap to be sewn down as the flap and one piece with darts for the pocket. This makes a nice roomy pocket. Sew the flap piece down first! :)
Sew the sides and bottom (if needed) of the lining.
I like to box seam the ends to make the bottom roomier - so sew in about 1/4 inch or so from the ends of both the jeans and the lining.
Stack the three together and run a few stitches over one end to hook the three together. Braid the three together and sew the opposite end back and forth a few times.
Pin to the inside of the jeans at each side seam.
After the lining is in, go back and sew the straps down better by making an X in a square at the waistline. Hope that makes sense. basically do what you need to do to secure your straps!
Go, grab your man's jeans and cut them up! Don't tell him I said you could do it!!
