reuse and mend your school uniform image

Sometimes your clothes can be a little too far gone to be passed on to others or they need a little repair. This is the best time to upcycle your pieces, fixing them to be worn longer or completely changing them into something new.

Pinterest is a great source of inspiration for upcycling ideas for people with all different levels of skills. Turning your old pieces into something new is such a fun project to get everyone in the family involved with! You could paint, add patches, cut the sleeves or create a whole new piece of clothing to keep wearing or to pass it on to someone new.
