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.
It will be a quilt made up of jean pockets. Yesterday I cut the sashing for it; I would like to sew it into one piece today and then (if I can find time to go and buy a fleece blanket for the back) I will be able to stitch the layers together at tomorrow's event (the RSPB Spring fair in Sandy, Bedfordshire). Wish me luck!
