Giving Back

The Ladies Ministry at my church (Lanett Nazarene Church)
put together gift bags for women who have miscarriages.
They were donated to our local hospital.
Some of the items included are a stuffed animal, a New Testament, and
a booklet of scripture, poems and prayers for mother.
Here is the group of ladies who helped deliver the gift bags.

These are miscarriage wrappers, which are made from
two 12 - 15 inch squares of flannel, with the edges serged together.
I made about 35 of these which were donated to my local hospital
along with the gift bags pictured above.

Miscellaneous Sewing

These jeans had about a 2 inch rip in the seat. 
I sewed a scrap of denim on the inside.
Then I used a zig-zag stitch to sew over the rip using matching thread.
You can barely see where the tear was now.

In the last week, I have re-attached a ruffle hem on a little girl's dress.
The dress was new at Christmas. The ruffle came off the first time it was worn.

I also sewed patches on my two nieces' karate uniforms - 4 patches on each top.

Oh, one more thing....
I made a cover for a foam back pillow with a velcro closure
so it can be removed and washed easily.

Do you need any miscellaneous sewing done?   If sew, email me at
