I have had a busy weekend working on several projects.
* Wiggly Bags
I have never heard of a wiggly bag and I had to google it. It is basically a bag that is used to hold a hickman or a "wiggly" line for a child who is undergoing cancer treatments. A tutorial and more information can be found at Strawberry Patch Ramblings. The bags are made with two 6 inch squares, twill tape, and velcro. I tried to use a mix of fabrics, including those that might appeal to a teenager. 18 bags were completed and are ready to be mailed out. I stopped making them, only because I bought up all the twill tape at my Joanns.
* 4 Patches 4 Hope
While I was making the bags, I thought I would stop by 4 Patches 4 Hope to see if they needed more 4 patch blocks. Regina started this project last year to honor her mother, and now her older sister is being treated in the same facility where her mum was treated. Please stop by and send her some encouragement. A box full of patches is also ready to be mailed.
