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.
Another version of the very popular flower bag, with a flower made partly from denim.
I quite like the effect of the denim. I'm toying with the idea of making more of the flowers to be sold separately, with a pin to attach them to bags. Maybe customers might like to be able to customise their bag to match their outfit?!
