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.
The first version of this bag (in pinks) proved very popular and I sold three versions last year, even though they were only made for the end of the season. Hence I have stocked up and made three versions for this season. This one is a floral one - a mix of slightly Victorian floral prints. Cute.
