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.
Mary is one of the ladies for whom I provided a sewing machine and some fabric to support her dressmaking business. Julie visited her during her stay and found that the business is going well, with Mary making clothes for people in the village.
