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 have been making these hearts for a while. After the first of session of a teaching series at our Church by Chris Duffett, I decided that I would give these away at future events. This basket is a reflection of that decision. I hope to have some as gifst at future events, as long as I can keep up with demand. So far at the two events at which I have offered them, they have been very positively received.
