I’m 12, and I live in NJ. I enjoy learning hands-on. I could make things all day. I love to draw, make mosaics, and do origami. I always try to upcycle.
By asking friends for unwanted clothes, and looking around our house for clothes that we don’t like anymore, because they are stained or worn, I was able to create this bed for my cat and this backpack.
I showed my backpack to one of my friends and now she is saving up all her old clothes to make one too.
My Top 5 reasons to upcycle with clothes:
- It’s better for the environment
- Fun to do
- Makes useful stuff
- Saves money by making instead of buying
- Doesn’t support the factories that treat apparel workers poorly
