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 is a version of the ever-popular pocket backpack, but this time with a waterproof lining. The lining is actually some plastic tablecloth - quite heavy to work with, but effective.
I was pleased to find this blue and white check, which I think works well with the denim. It strikes me that a similar bag would be useful as a nappy bag - I will look at making a mat to go with it.
