A Frostbite Shop

February 3rd, 2017

Mr Chiots and I were joking about me having a zipper pouch sweatshop the other evening, though my sewing room is rather cold, so it would be a frostbite shop. If you remember from last month, I’m making loads of zipper pouches to send to South America to hand out at the school that I work with. I’ll be raising funds through the organization I work for to fill them with pencils, erasers, toothbrushes, toothpaste, etc. I’ll need around 400 so each child will get one, which means that’s how many zipper pouches I need to sew.



My original goal was to sew one a day, so far I’m up to 150 as my total number finished. That’s not too shabby. I’m lucky they’re super quick to sew up. I’m noticing a big dent gone in my stash of fabric and thread collections, which was part of the point of this project. I’m really looking forward to seeing how the kids love these, hopefully this summer they will be delivered by a group I have traveling down.

What charitable projects are you involved at the moment?
