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 second version of the resized Belinda bag (as is my habit, I made five versions at once!) This one has another variation - instead of side straps, I used the ties to create a fastening for the top. I like the effect.
The patches this time are random, as I used the "offcuts" to make this version.
