Ms. Travis’ Girls Save the Earth

Some of the best buys this December came from the hands of Ray School’s Sewing Club.

Students who are a part of Ms. Travis’ after school sewing club made lovely handmade bags from recycled fabric.  The fabric came from jeans, dresses, shirts  and many other odd items.  The result was a  beautiful  assortment of  various sized bags.  which the group sold for holiday gifts.  The profits go back into the coffer to fund other sewing projects.  The idea behind the club is to help  us change from being a throw away society into a recycling society.  Club members have made many  other items from old jeans such as skirts, vests and belts.  Their work was featured in American Girl magazine as Shining Stars.
