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 (from Sew Serendipity) adapted well to denim, and to pockets. The lines are less crisp than those in the book, but that's what you get with denim! It is a long bag, and I made mine with magnetic fastenings.
This would be a great teen bag, I think, and would hold a lot of "stuff".
