Can you sew simple drawstring fabric BAGS? 
Larger scraps of donated fabric are used to sew fabric drawstring bags  to contain the clothing, toiletries, education supplies, and toys / book separately within the back packs.

Bag sizes are below:
EDUCATION bags: 32x43cm with a 15x20cm pocket inside. Double crocheted drawstring
TOILETRIES bags: 22x36cm; single crocheted drawstring.
TOY bags: 34x43cm. single crocheted drawstring.
Zippered PENCIL cases from medium weight fabric to fit into the education bags long enough for 1 15cm or 30 cm ruler.
Small lightweight JEWELLERY double ribbon drawstring bags for bracelets and hair bows.
Zippered or drawstring lightweight fabric cases for TISSUE packets / SANITARY items.
All of the bags have a single crocheted drawstring, except the education bags, which have a double drawstring.
Drawstrings are made from single crocheted yarn for safety reasons, and should only be slightly bigger than the bag (as advised by Qld Child Safety).
We can add these if required.
Any suitable fabric is fine.
(NO rubber backed curtain material).

QUILT SIZES may vary

Most children will be able to choose the size and colour they like the best.
