Tomorrow is our school carnival - The Coconut Carnival.
All this year I've been upcycling clothing that I picked up at the end of last year's carnival - some of the unsold clothes from the second hand clothing stall.
I've made heaps of things from sock monkeys to bags and turtles to mini notebook folders. I still have a few clothes left over and some bags of scraps, notions and seams etc. But I've now run out of time and will just have to save those for another time - maybe next year's stall!
All this week I've been promoting our stall at the school, by upcycling a pair of jeans, a shirt and a pair of socks little by little each day and displaying another one or two items made every morning in the school office window to show what our class stall will be all about.
I first made a sock monkey
Then a pencil case and tissue pouches.
A witchy messenger bag
and a pretty necklace with some scraps and buttons.
The kids at school helped make lots of pretty unique upcycled designer wrist cuffs.
My girls and their friends made the main stall sign yesterday, using fabric scraps and a hot glue gun!
So today and tomorrow morning will be spent labelling and pricing and sorting out the display.
I've spent so much time working towards this carnival stall - to show what can be made and done using the resources we have.
I hope I manage to inspire some people tomorrow and sell lots of upcycled goodies to raise funds for the school!
I shall be posting pictures and updates throughout the day on Instagram and Facebook if you're interested!
Wish me luck!
