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.
The first version of this bag sold rapidly, so it went on the list for a remake. I'll be interested to see if this one sells as quickly. To my mind, it is an ideal Christmas present. It makes me smile whenever I see it.
