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.
These are the most successful so far. I brought in from the garage my various bags of scraps, and thoroughly enjoyed cutting up those pieces I knew I couldn't throw away, but couldn't find a way to use because of all the parts which could not be sewn through. The advantage of hearts is that they are easily manipulated to use what is usable.
