My black leather jean handbag

Here is the bag that I made from size 10 leather jeans. I bought the jeans in a thrift shop for $4.00. I got them in early summer last year so they had been marked down several times already. The leather was soft and easy to work with. These jeans were already lined so I didn't add a contrasting lining.
At first, I only added a small rosette to the flap. After viewing a designer bag in a fashion magazine I enlarged the rosette. The center is an orphaned button.
