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.
A friend started me off on these by ordering some as Christmas presents. Since making those, I have invested in Letter It, which makes the job much easier. I'm still getting to know the software, but now experimenting with subway art style patterns.
These were early experiments. I particularly like the "Happiness" slogan.
"Money can't buy happiness, but it can buy books which is nearly the same thing."
