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.
These are the type of pocket I love to find - it is great to have a pocket which will fasten on a pocket bag. However, on this occasion the pockets were too small for a pocket bag, so I decided to use them to make this purse.
It is another of the boxy pocket bags I have made for a while; you can find the tutorial here.
