Just one more

This week I had the pleasure of going to a Trashion Show at our local Flood Brook School. The show was organized by the school’s amazing art teacher, Casey Bailey, and the designers and models were middle school students. The clothes were made from paper bags, plastic bags, newspaper, and more, and there were some pretty fabulous fashions. These kids taught me a thing or two about brown paper bags! A favorite of mine was a Mad Hatter’s hat made from a grocery bag, and I ran right home to try one myself.

If you want to make one, just start rolling up the bottom of the bag, shape it any way you want, and add decorations as you please. Thanks for the inspiration, kids! Just in time for Halloween.
