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.
An ever popular line needed restocking. I enjoy the money these bring in, and the fact that they draw people to the stall. It is fun to use scraps of different fabric. My heart does sink a little at the prospect of starting another sew of 30 though. Just saying!
