Sewing, Knitting and The Little Things

18 Jan

I read some time ago that refugees landing  in Lesvos were being given baby carriers and that this freed their hands to hold the hands of their other children. The faces of the parents as they were fitted with the carriers was beyond beautiful. I read that one can make Mai Tei baby carriers and so began to research how this could be done. I have found a pattern and gathered together all the materials and my first one is on the way. Here are three of the four straps/ties in various stages of making, two of 3′ and two of 6′. I’ll show you as it grows. I shall have to borrow a baby to try it out when done. If you would like to join me I’ll send you the links for the pattern.

I also read that people in Calais have been being given warm woolly snoods and they are as delighted with them as are the parents on Lesvos. I cannot sew in the evenings but I can knit while watching TV and these are very quick and easy in Super Chunky Wool. If you want to join me with the knitting, I’ll pass on this pattern too. It was a free one.

    Thank you very much Sally, I also am best knitting while watching TV. My jumper is purely “strictly come dancing” time! 🙂

    If there were more acts of kindness like this the world would be a far better place.
