As there was so much interest in the serged liners for the Days for Girls kits, Senora has tested out the pattern and prepared a demo for Sit ‘n Sew – August 19th at Living Faith Presbyterian Church, Baxter.
If you’re interested in sewing up some liners, please bring your serger along to Sit ‘n Sew. If you have any appropriate flannel you are willing to donate, please bring that along, too. The flannel CANNOT have animals, people, bugs, snakes, camo, military, flags or words and cannot be yellow. It should be a medium or dark colour or print to help disguise stains and should be pre-washed.
There are a few steps in the construction process that require a regular sewing machine, so even if you don’t own a serger, you will be able to help out.
As always, bag kits will be available also.

If you are interested in donating panties for Days for Girls, Carolyn has advised that panties in plain white are fine – but must be all cotton. She will dye them as needed. The sizes they need are girls 8-14 or women’s size XS or S.
Also in demand are Ziploc 1L bags. They must be Ziploc brand as they have found they hold up the best.
Carolyn sends her thanks for our continued support. We have about a dozen bags completed and will invite her back again when there are enough to make her trip worthwhile.
