I like to sew for charity and Valentine’s Day seemed like the perfect time to make something cheery. I made 10 zippered bag sets for a New Jersey charity that helps new mom’s who are leaving domestic abuse situations,. The stress of being a new mom is already challenging. Top motherhood off with a partner who is abusive, and it’s unthinkable!! This is my little way of sending love to those anonymous women. I sewed these scrappy bags for them and had residents on the memory unit at my work make some cards. Practical and simple is how I think of these gifts bag sets. I hope they brought cheer to the women who received them.
I was so happy to send these off at the beginning of February. I admit to having kept one extra zippered bag, because I sewed the hearts upside down. Ironic, huh? The extra bag makes me smile every time I see it now. I’ve now moved on to other things. Next time I’ll show you quilt blocks that I’ve been working on.
