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.
I was very pleased to have passed on to me a curtain sample book at the start of the holiday and knew exactly what I wanted to use the samples for. Here is one of the results - a panel bag which features the curtain fabric. The curtains in this sample book were all based on classical art, and were very interesting to work with. I still have some samples to use.
