Scripps Ranch Students Turn Castoffs into Clutchbags

Students enrolled in Clothing and Design at Scripps Ranch High School participated in a Re-Cycle or Re-Use project.

Some students used their sewing skills to create tote bags that replace paper or plastic grocery bags. Others turned gently used pillow cases, jeans, shirts, jackets and other out-of-use household items into trendy drawstring bags and zipper clutches. Discarded buttons and lace were then added as design embellishments.

The items are on display in the school office, reminding us that with a little bit of creativity, we can all make changes toward a greener way of life. For more information, contact Barbara Hillman, CCTE teacher, at (858) 621-9020 ext 4504.
