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.
A stark black and white flower for this bag. The white denim sets the flower off effectively, and gave me the clue as to which flower to add. In this batch of bags, I tried to place one "unusual" stripe in the centre of each bag. I like the effect.
