March was yet another month for fantastic donations, gorgeous pre loved clothing, fabulous knits and lots of things for the Eid gift bag appeal.
Thank you so much to those who answered my plea for fabric bags. More are still needed so if anyone fancies dragging the sewing machine out and making a few it would be wonderful!
Thanks to everyone’s generosity a further fifty-one Eid bags were able to be made up in March. There are still quite a few to do especially for the older children. Actually, I’m a bit stuck as to what to put in the bags for boy’s age 12+, any ideas? Sue suggested solar-powered calculators or geometry sets which sound great but it would be really helpful to hear your ideas too.
Still looking for short-sleeved patterns / links so if you have any please share. I’m trying a bolero pattern that Phyllis and Helen sent me. It looks good so far. Once I’ve finished it I’ll post a picture and if anyone is interested I’ll send them a copy of the pattern.
Thank you so much everyone for being so kind and thoughtful. Your help with this is truly appreciated.
I hope you all have an amazing April!
Oh and before I forget, the total amount of donations received throughout March was 1019 .Wow!
