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 return to an old favourite. I was surprised how low I had run on stocks of the little unlined purses, so have been remaking at quite a fast pace. These, with curved bases, are among the restock. It felt good to use up some of the masses of front pockets I had not been able to throw away.
