Upcycled Textiles

The world is you oyster or even your bunny, octopus or bungee jumping monster in the textiles up-cycling Enrichment group. The children have been making painted bookmarks from old jeans, animals from socks filled with rice and have many more plans for future weeks. The collage of a tank will be glued and stitched, cards will be made and hair slides designed. Lots of triangles are already cut ready to make bunting and then buttons will be sewn on to decorate it. Who would have thought that old socks would make great fingerless mittens and sweat bands? What will they think of next?
