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 am supporting the building of a new school for disabled children.
Extending my use of scraps (see last Wednesday's post) I hunted through my stash and found some oddments of wipe clean table cloth to team them with. I used the same method as for the small cosmetics cases, but this time made pouches which were 4 blocks by 3 blocks, making them 12 1/2" by 9 1/2". The wipe clean lining is almost waterproof (the holes made by the sewing make it a little porous if you tried to hold water in it!) and also give a good firm shape.
As you see, I had three different wipe clean fabrics in my stash. These worked well - I hope they will be popular Christmas presents later in the year.
