Patty Says:
"To make your custom bag, I'll 'need two pairs of jeans to use for 'the back, sides and straps. I'll provide the burlap, lining and Made From My Ex's print piece. An email will notify you when I receive your pair of jeans. Orders are usually completed in two weeks or less. I'll email you again when your order is complete and ready for shipping."

Note: A larger duffel bag, with zipper, requires two pairs of jeans and some contrasting pieces. A third pair of jeans with a different wash can be utilized.

PattyO also repurposes denim or other nostalgic items into couture. View prices and process.
