Koala mittens service project
Today my Needle & Thread clubbers began stitching pairs of cotton mittens for koalas whose paws were injured during recent wildfires in Australia. We found the pattern online (http://www.ifaw.org/sites/default/files/default/KOALA-MITTENS-PATTERN-A4.pdf) and used some 100% cotton bandanas for the soft cloth. The group collecting these mittens is also looking for handmade pouches for orphaned joeys - I will need a sewing machine for that one!
