Teacher of Family and Consumer Sciences and Health to Middle- and High-School Students

Recycle and ReDesign

I love teaching culinary skills and am blessed to be at a school that allows me to concentrate on one area. But my true love outside of work is textiles! My co-worker asked me to share some of my projects with her class for their recycle and redesign project.
To begin I had the students guess how much money my outfit cost. I’m wearing:
  • Izod floral shirt
  • Silver brand embroidered jeans
  • BCBG Boots
  • Fossil Belt
The closet student guessed $12 and won a beanie that I crocheted from unraveled yarn. The actual cost was $9.35.
I also showed them my T-shirt quilt, quilts that I made from vintage sheets, and bags that I crocheted from plastic bags. It was a lot of fun!
I hope what you've read is useful! I post here biweekly with resources for Family and Consumer Sciences and Home Economics teachers and share my classroom happenings much more frequently on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook.
