Louise they are gorgeous! Thank you!
Justine is part of our SE QLD volunteer team, and has been creating items for Angels for the Forgotten for about a year now. She has made 6 tote bags to meet our specifications, so we are able to utilise them as Crisis Care bags for teen girls and mums. They really are tote-ally gorgeous!!!
Please note: Crisis care bags need to be 50cmx40cm to ensure they can hold the items we need to include. Tote bags must also have a fastener (velcro, button, or snap fastener) to secure the top of the bag & prevent items from falling out.
Justine's donation included 5 lovely hand made toiletry bag, Crisis Care bag & tag sets & 7 face washers. There were also school supplies, socks, gloves and a baby blanket. Justine's 9 year old daughter also purchased some toothbrushes with her own money to complete the donation. How sweet!
SE QLD volunteer & avid sewer Melanie has been busy again this week! She has crafted 5 adorable sets of leggings, 4 baby wraps and 7 teen pillowcases!
A heart felt thank you to everyone that contributed to make these lovely quilts!
