Please bring along your collected items to any of the Seabreeze meetings leaving them with Pat Greenwood or a committee member.
 
Drawstring Bag
Approximate size for making this bag is two fat quarters. Use elastic, ribbon, braid, etc for the drawstring. 
 
How to make a Wheat Bag
Cut a piece of cotton fabric 12” x 12” and fold in half, right sides together. Sew along one short side, the long side and halfway along the remaining short side. Turn inside-out to create a small ‘pillow case’.  Fill with about 750 – 1000 g of wheat and close the bag by slip stitching the aperture.
 
Note:  please attach the following note to the wheat bag.
WHEAT BAG USE
BEFORE USING THE FIRST TIME HEAT THE BAG IN MICROWAVE ON MED-HIGH FOR 2 MIN TO DRY OUT. ALLOW TO COOL AND THEN HEAT FOR 2 MIN ON HIGH TO USE.
 
Quilts for Kids
Please consider donating your time in whipping up a quilt for a child who will greatly appreciate this gift.
