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.
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.
