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.
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?!
