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.
OK, so I am not sure I have ever seen a black flower, but I do like the effect of this! I teamed the lovely floral print (in which the base colour is black) with a plain black cotton. The bag, as you may notice, is made from particularly wide strips of denim.
If you are interested in making this bag, there is a tutorial for it through my tutorials page.
