Starting from scratch again

So I'm admitting (more to myself that anything) that I'm not going to be able to work everything out first time. Thus, for little sis's birthday bag, I'm going to 'make' my own fabric (yes, using the old jeans!) but use a bought pattern. That way I'm not totally wimping out on the old innovation front. This is what the material is going to look like:
I'm making material. Sort of.

And I found a pattern here at u-handbag by Amy Butler that is simple enough for me to do, but will hopefully help me to learn about the ins and outs of bag making as well. There seems to be a pretty active flickr pool of people showing off the stuff they've made with her patterns and they're looking good!
