A fellow Girl Guide leader has been awarded one of the Royal Bank of Canada's Make 150 Count grants to celebrate Canada's 150th birthday. It is a service-based grant to inspire youth to make a change. Guider K's project is related to poverty and will be creating 50 Birthday Bags. The bags will contain everything to throw a birthday party -- children should be able to celebrate a birthday despite their family's financial circumstances.
I decided to help out and make some bags to hold all the birthday items (cake mix, can of frosting, birthday candles, balloons, birthday hats, streamers, and a birthday card). A few of my guild mates have offered to make some bags as well. So I dug through the larger pieces in my scrap bag -- here are two of the five bags I've made so far.
I need to step up my sewing production this weekend. I'm not sure I'll be able to make 50 bags before the end of February, but I'm going to try my best.
