Yesterday was the first 'Stitch and Sip' at 'Make & Do'. We had coffees and cookies and a good natter! The next is set to be Saturday the 29th March so if you are local then feel free to come along and join the fun from 2pm.
Whilst I was there I managed to whip up a fourth 'Wiggly Bag' for the children's hospital. A wiggly bag is a little pouch worn across the body by pediatric cancer patients to house the lines used for chemotherapy treatments. The customers and staff at 'Make & Do' have been making them from bright, fun remnants in the hope that they might make the process a little less frightening for the children.
There is a tutorial on the 'Make & Do' blog if you wish to put some fabric scraps to good use! It simply requires a strip measuring approximately 12cm x 30cm and 150cm tape or ribbon.
Pop finished bags into the shop or find address details on the website. I hope everyone's enjoying their Sunday!
