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 am supporting the building of a new school for disabled children.
Elephants and giraffes have featured in my range previously, with elephants being a very popular choice throughout last year. This year I have found a way to create the giraffes as doorstops, which I hope will be well received. Someone did comment that they were not as heavy as the elephants; I had to point out that there was less space in a giraffe's spindly legs for the sand!
