here is the project i've been working on. can you guess what these are? or better, what they are used for?
they are knitted, with a drawstring, pouches. their almost done, needing the cotton flannel lining, that i'm still making.
they are for joeys. baby kangaroos.
a cozy home.
i learned about this need from annie, an australian blogger living in queensland, here is what annie has to say:
"I'd also asked about making pouches for the joeys - carers need pouches all year round to keep the little ones warm and secure whilst being cared for. So this will be one of my projects this year - the thought occurred to me that some of you might like to join me and make one too - just imagine some little joey secure and warm tucked inside your made with love pouch ... Wildcare have provided me with a copy of their how to instructions - so please let me know if you want to make one or please spread the word amongst your crafting friends."
for more information, go to this post of annies at her blog bimbimie. or you can email me for directions as well. i wish i could take that imaginary magic carpet and fly to each of you that would like a little knitting lesson!
p.s. for those that asked about the recycled crayons that were made a few posts back go here for a great tutorial!
