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.
I finished 15 monster phone cases this weekend. Unfortunately I wasn't totally focused on what I was doing, and forgot the teeth on the first few. I did consider going back and unpicking, but decided not to bother, especially since I clearly had not cut enough teeth for all 15 cases!
I'm putting together a tutorial for these, which hopefully will be finished later this week.
