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.
Like last year, this was a really well organised, supportive day. Bletchley High street was lined with stalls; there was lots of entertainment going on and strong support from local radio.
Sadly, unlike last year, the weather was very mixed! We had a couple of really heavy downpours, and my impression was that this had a negative effect on the number of people coming out to shop, or hanging around to look at stalls.
A good day's total for me, nonetheless, and lots of great conversations.
Hopefully see you next year, Bletchley!
