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.
With many, many thanks to the lovely Ronnie and the ladies she works with, I was provided with a large stock of bandanas cut out from jeans - all I had to do was sew them up! So I now have a new supply - 35 of them, which I hope will see me through a few sales. Interestingly I have been asked for these recently. Some are lines with fleece, others with towelling. Some are velcro fastened, while others have an ingenious button-hole fastening. I'm delighted with these, and with the time saved by having them cut out for me.
