ReWork – From jeans to tool bag

Everyone knows them, everyone has them at home: old jeans that are no longer worn, but are too good to throw away. The solution: from old to new. And what better to sew from a sturdy, thick denim fabric than a practical bag to store our "daily essentials"? From tools to sewing accessories to cooking and painting utensils – there are many possible applications.
