Sewers + Makers Unite!

Sewers and makers, we need your help!! Australia is burning as our bushfire crisis rages out of control. Unprecedented numbers of wildlife have been killed and injured including our iconic koalas and kangaroos.

The RSPCA has created a simple how-to worksheet (google RSPCA Sewing Guide) and video which shows how to make care pouches for injured animals. If you’re feeling helpless like I was, put your skills into action and sew some up to send their way. Remember, this is just one organisation/pattern/tutorial and there are many out there that need our help so do some googling to find more. Another great resource is the Animal Rescue Craft Guild on Facebook, they have a bounty of information and tutorials for a variety wildlife groups in need of donations.

My friend Naomi of @thesewloist has also just released a Bat Wrap tutorial, so be sure to check out her blog too for more ideas and inspiration.
