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.
I introduced this line this year, producing a number of variations. They have sold extremely well, and I seem to be remaking them on a very regular basis.
This set all have button closures. I make the straps of varying lengths (though, of course, I never seem to have the exact length and style required!) They are great to hold just a phone and a bit of money, and all have at least one back pocket as part of the purse.
