I felt so happy recently to be able to contribute a few things for a project that helps families in need.
Little Sprouts is a local group that puts together kits for new babies. These boxes include everything from nappies and clothing, strollers and high chairs. Everything is gathered and sorted by a team of hard working volunteers. Working through affiliated social agencies, they dispatch the packs to those families in the greatest need.
I first learned about Little Sprouts through the work of another hard working local woman Karen, who I mentioned on my blog a few years ago (here). She is assembling packs of pre-cut projects ready to be made into specific items for the baby boxes.
Karen dropped around some of the items: hooded towels, change mats, toys, merino hats, etc which I made up. I was reminded of how extremely untalented I am when it comes to trimming things with bias tape. For my next donation to Little Sprouts, I plant to make soft toys and stretchy baby pants.
