Make Do And Mend

During WWII, civilians of Britain had to make do with the clothes that they had. When their clothes got too small, they had to either:

. Turn them into rags

. Swap them at the local clothing exchange

. Cut them into smaller parts and knit them into something else/ use them to mend clothes.

Anothe use for rags would be to create rag rugs (which are made from rags and potato sacks) to liven up their houses.
