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.
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.
