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.
This bag makes me think of sunshine and summer holidays. Like the chocolate bag, it tends to bring a smile, but maybe a different type of smile.
I have made this several times, in different colour ways. I like this version in blues, and in fact I have used this same colour combination for several bag panels recently. Maybe I should branch out into other colours using different shades - I like the idea of using shades of green, and I know I have several green embroidery spools around my sewing room.
