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 had great success with these when I first made them. A return has been a long time coming - they are quite fiddly to make. However, if sales this weekend are any indication, these bags will remain on my list for some time to come. This little fellow has already sold, but I still have a few others left.
