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.
I made three of these initially, but am intending to make more - I think they will sell quite rapidly. I chose more pockets from the garage earlier today - I have a tub of pockets, cut out in various sizes and ready to use. As soon as I have finished the 15 elephants and 10 giraffes I already have underway, I hope to get round to them!
