Be True to Your School

In Sewing Club, we have a lot of school pride.  A giant bag of worn-out school uniforms was donated to us.  Since our school logo is on them, we couldn't donate the clothes to a charity.  Students begin to wear uniforms in first grade, so the kindergarten students had fun sewing with "big kid" fabric!

Once again, the power of materials took over.  I love how they were each inspired to create something unique.  Plus, it was a great way to reuse and recycle.

 This little jumper purse is so cute!  I'm not sure of how practical, but does that really matter?
 Who is that masked 2nd grader?!
 Of course, headbands had to be made.
Pillows out of sweatshirts, fleeces, and jumper material were everywhere.
