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 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.
