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.
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!
