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 design proved to be rather time consuming, and I have not yet made a decision about whether or not to restock it. I didn't make it easy for myself by using a variety of embroidery patterns, but it did add to the appeal!
Russian dolls seem very popular still, so I suspect this will come in for a remake.
