A fun way to re­cy­cle old school uni­forms

Rutherglen Reformer - - News -

The latest in our monthly “up­cy­cling” col­umn from R: evolve shows you how to make a make a fun cush­ion from kids’ old school uni­forms.

Schools out for sum­mer and it’s time to start think­ing about new school uni­forms.

But what should you do with those old school shirts that are too faded and stained to hand down to some­one else?

To­day we show you how to help your child make a fun cush­ion from their old uni­form, over the hol­i­days! 1. You will need An old school t-shirt A scrap of ma­te­rial Scis­sors Nee­dle Thread 2. Cut the sleeves off the t-shirt 3. Turn the t-shirt in­side-out and sew the sleeve holes closed. Then take your scrap of cloth and sew it onto the in­side of the col­lar. Now sew half way along the bot­tom of the t-shirt leav­ing a gap to fill your cush­ion cover (you may want to shorten the t-shirt depend­ing on its size).

4. Turn the t-shirt out­side-in so the badge is to the front. Now stuff your cush­ion with an old cush­ion pad or why not utilise those odd socks lurk­ing in your drawer?

5. Once the cush­ion is stuffed to your lik­ing, sew the gap at the bot­tom and your cush­ion is com­plete.

Use your imag­i­na­tion and share with us other things you could make from old uni­forms on twit­ter and face­book @re­volvere­cy­cle or pop into our swap shop bou­tique and bag your­self a free uni­form for your child next term!
