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.
Thanks to Pam, I just found this contest:
Hosted by Wendy, from The Crafter's Apprentice, the challenge is to make something using both old and new materials. I think I might just have one or two projects which qualify...!
