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.
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.
