Sewing Club Gives Back

Sewing Club made these "On the Go Rollups" filled with toiletry items to be donated to the Grace-St. Luke's Church outreach programs.   I feel that it is so important for the kids to understand how simply they can help others and that the skill of sewing can be a helpful and powerful skill.

A little bit of love and hope was sewn into each rollup.  Leaves inscribed with "Somebody Loves You" was added.  The phrase was inspired by the wonderful book Somebody Loves You Mr. Hatch.
We used the Art-To-Go-Go idea in Sewing School 2 to construct these.  The pouch is made from a washcloth and has about 4 pockets.  We handsewed the rollups, but they could easily be machine sewn.

We hope that they will touch the lives of others and offer some comfort as the weather turns colder.  Such a special way for Sewing Club to give thanks.

What a nice sewing club, I wish I can enroll my daughter there, learning sewing skills in an early age do make sense at all besides on giving them a brief knowledge and experience about sewing stuff, somehow they can learn on how to help others too with your outreach program.
