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.
This cute trio of friends (left to right, Mitch, Fleur and Larry) are the latest to join my doorstop range. On my first sale this season the doorstops massively outsold the cuddlies, so I know it is worth making more, even if they do weigh my car down disproportionately!
