DIY: turn your favorite pair of jeans into a doggie tote

I noticed that Vanilla Bean couldn’t keep up with Princess during our 15 minutes short walk. Often times, I ended up carrying her back home.  So, I thought of bringing a bag with me the next time we’re out for a walk. When I checked my existing totes, none is suitable for my little puppy. Since I’m in a crafting mood, I decided to make one from scratch just for her.

There are five points I considered before doing this project.

  • First, I want Vanilla Bean to ride in ease and comfort.
  • Second, the tote bag should fit her size and could carry her weight.
  • Third, I’m not spending a dime so I’ll have to recycle and make use of the available materials I already have.
  • Fourth, embellishment would be minimal for my puppy is still teething.
  • Last, project time constraints is within an hour.

I picked out my favorite old pair of jeans, some leftover nylon strapping, and decorative ribbon for this project. Making this bag from scratch was easy; it only requires basic sewing skills. It took me less than an hour to finish it than writing the step-by-step tutorial published on Cut Out + Keep.

P.S. The challenging part is to get you furry pal into the bag:)
