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 is a new applique for me, and one which was fun to sew - if a little time consuming with fiddly cutaways and two different fabrics. The finished effect is pleasing, and I am looking forward to remaking it in different colourways.
