One of the charities supported by the PebbleCreek quilt club is a family services agency that helps women and families dealing with domestic violence. One of the ways we help them is by providing Zippy Strippy bags filled with toiletries. The children are allowed to select a Zippy Strippy bag so that they have a gift to give to their mom at Christmas.
We recently had a work day for making the bags, which was well attended.
The facilitator, Donna, had previously kitted up the fabric strips and had all the trims available. She was an excellent teacher and helped when needed so we got all the steps in the process. She also took photos; most of the photos in this post were taken by her.
Here are Karen and I showing off our finished bags.
The group was able to make lots of Zippy Strippy bags that day, and the ones that didn't get finished were taken home to be finished later.
Once I learned the process, it was easy to make the bags. There are still more kits available and more bags are needed, so I'll probably make another at social sewing.
