One of our amazingly talented young ladies, Lily (Year 9) has taken a creative approach to the annual question, ‘what to do with her outgrown school uniform?’ Rather than throw-away or pass down to a younger sibling or cousin, she has up-cycled her jumper, shirt and PE kit into a rather zazzy blanket! In Lily’s words:
“I have created this blanket using my previous year school uniform, with the help of my mum’s new sewing machine. The materials I have used, are; my cherry red jumpers, patches of my school P.E jumpers, as well as bits of the school P.E skort and top. For the border of this blanket, I have included a line of string piping, covered by my school blouse. In the far corner, I have included the school logo, to show how proud I am to be attending this school. It took me the entirety of the summer holidays and but it was worth it – I’m really proud of what I have produced :)”.
