What you need:

step 1

Measure your zipper along your jeans. I used the bottom of a pant leg.

Remember; extra seams and stitching add character.

step 2

I cut my jeans the length of my zipper.

step 3

After cutting when you open your denim you should have a big square or rectangle, depending on the size you want.

step 4

Put a line of Aleene's Fabric Fusion along the top right side edge of your denim and press your zipper face down on top of the glue.

Be careful not to get the glue on the zipper part only on the fabric side of the zipper.

step 5

Use your clothes pins to hold this seam in place as it dries.

You'll want to let it dry a bit before moving to the next step.

step 6

When your first seam is mostly dry, flip your zipper over so you can see the other side, as in the photo above and add your fabric fusion in a line along the top edge of the zipper.

step7

Press the bottom edge of your denim into the fabric fusion and hold your seam with clothespins.

Let these seams dry before moving on to step 8.

step 8

Open your zipper.

This is very important. If you don't open your zipper before closing the sides of your bag you will have a really hard time opening it to turn it right side out.

Cut off the bottom hem of one pant leg.

Press your seam together and hold with clothespins.

When your glue is dry you can cut off any excess fabric from the loop.
