Charity Sewing

Help out a charity by sewing up a storm!

echidna-badgeWe’ve all had different experiences in life where events shape, change and make us who we are. Many have been touched by generous, caring charities that focus on helping people or animals in their most desperate time of need.

Therefore, I’d like to dedicate this post to providing support in a sewing/embroidery way to help make a huge difference in someone’s life, including those beloved animals.

Since I work at Echidna Sewing, I’ve been reaching out to charities all over Australia to find out what we can all sew to help towards events, fundraising or even just to give away to its members or animals.

If you would like to get involved please follow the Echidna Sewing blog, which will focus on a new charity sewing project each month. You can even look back at previous month to find out what every charity needs, all year round.

Plus, if there is a charity that you know of and would like to include, you can suggest it on the Charity Sewing page.

This is something I’ve been really involved in and already seen the most amazing donations from members across Australia. The amount of items that have been created and posted on the Echidna Sewing & Embroidery Facebook community showcasing people’s incredible talent and generosity has completely blown me away. So, if you would like to get involved, there’s no better time than now. Plus, your donation will put a smile on someone’s face who needs it the most.

Charity Sewing – Laundry Bag

Echidna Sewing January Project

If you’re interested in a sewalong head over to the Echidna Sewing blog, where they will be featuring a new Charity project each month. This month’s sewalong is dedicated to Aussie Heroes – A blog encouraging people to make quilts and laundry bags for Aussie service men and women currently serving overseas, and to express our gratitude for their service.

The project is to sew a laundry bag themed for men, since that’s what they are currently needing. So, I had a look on Pinterest (as you do) and came up with this design below. It’s almost designed to look like a punching bag!
