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.
THis design brings e much pleasure. For a start, I love the sentiment. But the pleasure mainly comes from the fact that this was the first embroidery design I created on the machine I have been lent. It was so easy and so satisfying to combine the image and the text.
I intend to share this post at these link parties:
