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.
Old jean shorts and belt made into a handbag. I had some St. Patty's Day fabric to use for the lining and kept the tags from inside the jeans outside the lining - It's nice and big and has 4 ready made pockets on the outside but I think the next one will need to be made out of jeans or longer shorts. These gave me very little to work with. Also, I would've liked to use the legs from the jeans to make the handle.
