Care Bags




A few weeks ago I posted that one of my goals was to make some Care Bags for
kids to go to the organization of the same name. I finally accomplished that this week. The four larger bags have different Hawaiian fabrics on each side. The three smaller ones have the same green Hawaiian fabric on both sides. I received these fabrics in secret pal swaps on AOL years ago and could never decide what to do with them. I finally decided. :o)

Since I've moved into my new sewing room, my cat has decided to spend lots of time with me. Maybe because I put my table in front of a sunny window? So, here is Cheyenne, coming to help me with the care bags. I received her as a gift for my 40th birthday and she is a sweetheart. She's 5 now (yeah, you can do the math!) and I just love her. We have two other cats who share their house with us, Misty, who is 9 and Calvin who is 3. Along with Sam, the dog and Stevie the bunny. They own us!

What a wonderful thing to use those fabrics for! And I can't help laughing about your "kids" that 'let' share the house with them. LOL My two wienie dogs and one kitty think the humans stay here solely to make sure they are fed and loved on. LOL

Those are really cute bags! I want to make some for my classroom next year for my kids and their weekly readers.

oooh your cat looks just like one of mine. I have no idea how old she is though as she came form a no kill shelter...

I love your bags, very cheery.

Pets, especialy cats, most definetly own (if that is the right word) the people. Our cat dose not think he is a cat; bear, monkey, lion, Martian cat, person, maybe; but not a Cat as in Kitty. He also knows that he is royalty there for we may be his "parents" (when he thinks he is a person) but we are still his subjects.

Very pretty cat. That is my favorite color of cats.

What are the bags for? That reminds me, I need to make more Christmas bags!!

What a great idea to use that fabric for - see, you wouldn't have had it if you used it years ago, right?

Aww, she's got such a pretty face. Mine love it when I'm sewing and they can snuggle at my feet or by my side. :)

I went to the site, to see if I could find directions, but I must be dense, because I couldn't.
