Hello, firstly thank you for taking the time to read this very important message.

I have recently become aware of a fantastic organisation called Backpack for Aussie Kids who have set themselves a goal of providing 1000 backpacks to foster care children around Australia. I won't go into the finer details of the organisation as it's all on their website.

What I am proposing is donating crayon/pencil rolls to this great cause. I as one person can only accomplish so much but as a group I am hoping we can band together to sew as many rolls as possible. So if you can sew & would like to help that would be great.

The rolls take very little fabric to make & Spotlight has some wonderfully bright cotton fabrics that are very inexpensive. I would only ask that you offer to make as many as you think you are able, I will not be setting a min. amount per person.

On Monday, 21st I will email everyone with the pattern & instructions on how to make the crayon rolls. I hope also have adapted the pattern to make it larger for pencils or felt pens.
If you would like to be apart of this please email me at before Monday, 21st June
