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, like the dogs, uses the vibrant spots fat quarter pack. I teamed each fabric with a scrap piece of plain material, and chose white for the applique thread rather than my usual black. The effect is quite striking.
