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 had a wonderful evening last night at Bromham Ladies' night. The
Church was beautifully decorated, with free crafts, pampering and
We were entertained by Unisong, the local community choir, and everyone seemed to have a wonderful time.
The money raised is being given to the Utange project, to help with the orphanage, feeding programme and, the latest project, building a high school in the village. I had a fabulous evening of sales, making a staggering £378.
