Cut out a 36x24cm piece out of the jeans or any size you want.

Fold the jean fabric to measure and mark the main purse and the flap.

Cut two corners of the flap as shown in the picture attached to this step.

Now fold over the edges (of the flap and the lower part) and sew along them.

Step 3: Sewing the Sides

Now fold the main part up (to where the flip starts) and sew the both sides.

I stitched 2 times along the sides.

Sewing the corner is quite easy.

Hold the corner of lower part of the bag as shown in first picture of this step and sew a straight line along it.

Similarly sew the other corner.

Now turn the right side of the bag out.

Step 5: Attaching the wooden button

Carefully mark the buttonhole (according to the button size) on the flap and use a scissor to cut it.
Select a buttonhole stitch from the stitches available on your machine and carefully sew around it.
Now attach a button (I used a wooden button).

And the purse is ready! wasn't that easy?! :)
