Today I also visited Backpacks for Vic Kids to discuss what they need for their clients, Kids in Foster Care. I took 6 of our lovely hand knits, 2 quilts, a smaller blanket and one of these sanitary pad holders. They loved everything and they would love more of these items as well as kid's clothing and Santa Sacks. Usually they provide 2,000 to 2,500 Santa Sacks but last year they needed 4,500 so they have started making them now to avoid the pressure of last minute finishes . I will add a link for the Santa Sacks but in the meantime, the link for the sanitary pad holder is at https://www.tipsfromatypicalmomblog.com/2014/05/make-sanitary-pad-pouch-u-kotex.html
It's very easy project, using just 5 squares of 6 inch fabric and no fastening to close the pouch. It took me less than 5 minutes to make one so I plan on making more for them.
Thank you all so much for your generous donations everyone and please know that they are all appreciated.
Hugs, Jan Mac
So pleased my parcel arrived safely. That’s a huge jump in demand for Santa sacks.
The hexagon quilt is stunning.
Thanks Jan for the links. I’ll be waiting for the Santa Sack link too.
Jan, is there a way to put up your pattern links on your side bar for us to find easier.
I'll make a few pad holders & send them along... xox
