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 style of pocket purse is a firm favourite at my sales, and one I have been making for quite some time now. It is a great way to use up interesting pockets, following the shape of them to cut the fabric. I recently bought some buttons from Hobbycraft and decided this would be a good way to feature them.
