Thanks so much to all the folks who came along to make marsupial pouches on Thursday 21 November. It has been so successful and awakened a movement! We made 576 pouches in one day……. amazing! Great job everyone.
Let’s not stop here. Operation Cuddles is back by popular demand on Tuesday 26 November from 10 am till 3 pm.
Join our working bee to make pouches for orphaned wildlife for the RSPCA.
Let’s use our craft skills to help native animals injured and displaced by bushfires. We are going to make marsupial pouches, RSPCA instructions here. We will sew, knit, crochet and felt pouches for sugar gliders, possums, kangaroo joeys and koalas.
Bring along some fabric: cotton jersey/flannelette/wool fabric/fleece, or just come and help. BYO sewing machine.
Thanks so much to full circle fibres for their QLD cotton jersey donation.
Our revamped instructions and sizes are here. (We learnt from our first day’s experience) Perhaps it’s best to check with your local Wildlife Rescue or RSPCA to see which size they require.
If you would like to make some at home you could drop the finished pouches into us at 12 Payne St Auchenflower or to your local RSPCA or wildlife rescue group.
