This blog shows my recycled denim creations, along with tutorials for items I have designed myself. I collect old jeans (a strange collection, I know!) and cut them up to make bags, purses, animals and other items of varying sizes and shapes. I then sell these to raise money for weomen and children in the town of Utange, near Mombasa, in Kenya. I help women to set up their own businesses and provide solar lights to enable teachers and pupils to work at home after the sun sets.
It's a simple rectangular bag, with the base squared off. The orange squares in the side, and the lining, are made from some lovely Gambian fabric a friend brought back for me. It really sets the denim off, I think.
