So far we have helped with a number of different projects, from Egyptian King to Hungry Caterpillar for World Book Day costumes, reversible fury leg warmers, sewn pockets into a skirt, created a denim corset from a pair of jeans, taken a denim jacket and added the detail off a dining cloth, used vintage buttons to pimp a cape, made a bow for a mobility scooter with donated ribbon, made valentines roses from otherwise scrap fabric, made snoods from scraps from the cutting room floor and made Morsbags from unused upholstery fabric, to name but a few.
