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.
These are lined purses. They are straightforward to make and there is a tutorial for them in the tutorials section of this site. I enjoy finding "interesting" pockets to use. There is quite a lot of sewing involved, but the results are pleasing.
