Changes for the new year... Unfortunately Global Volunteer Network has moved their New Zealand office to Bangkok so they can no longer hand deliver items of children's clothing. However, I have contacted a wonderful New Zealand charity named Little Sprouts who are in desperate need of baby items. More information about them is on their website: http://littlesproutsnz.org
Some of the items they require are photographed below and I will add some more items throughout the year. Free kits of precut fabric and instructions can be posted out anytime during the year and all ages are welcome to sew these easy and much needed items.
So if you enjoy sewing and would love to make a difference to people in need, drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org

There is a great tutorial and tips for these hooded towel sets. They include making a hooded towel, burp cloths and flannels. The tutorial and tips can be found on these links. I haven't quite completed the hooded towel yet so photo coming sorry.

Change mats are super easy to make. They just require straight seams to sew up (turn back inside out) and sew up and then two straight lines for the fold lines. I have used a thin plastic for one side which does move around a wee bit but if it's a problem let me know and I can easily change it to calico cotton.
