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 need to restock on these before sales start again, but I do have a few left. It is fun chosing the pockets for each one; I try to include at least one pocket which can be fastened closed so. I have made some very "girly" versions too, with sparkles and gems. You can find a tutorial for this bag through my tutorials page.
