Make No. 31 – Syringe Driver Bags for Ipswich Hospital

Happy Sunday morning! How’s your weekend so far?

We had an unexpectedly lovely day out yesterday…we had only planned to stay home and get some jobs done, but when we found out there was a huge book fair going on in a stunning church nearby we couldn’t resist.

I think a separate visit to hunt down green men and gargoyles with my camera is in order soon. It was only built a century ago so I might be out of luck…but in the meantime…tea and books. Lots and lots of books. Heaven. Paul bought two, I got sixteen. Greedy girl 🙂

Next we shopped for some bits and pieces for a Halloween party next week. It was a strangely liberating experience, buying stuff to trash (don’t worry, the costumes will be re-used, my eco conscience doesn’t stretch that far). Zombiedom awaits! Then off to a housewarming party, to meet some new people, hug some old friends and giggle at kids wearing pampas grass tails and setting fire to marshmallows. Fabulous.

Today will be our day of Doing Jobs and Making Stuff. So, on to Make 31, which is in response to this appeal from Making For Charity.

We’ve had a request from the staff at Ipswich Hospital, they are in need of some syringe driver bags. if there is anyone in the area that would like to help out the address to post them is

Syringe driver bags are simple to make and it’s been touching to hear some of the happy responses from people who are going through a tough time. If you sew, or are thinking of taking up sewing, they are a wonderfully straightforward project. All straight lines, no zips or buttons. I’ve got more fabric lined up for future bags, which I will slot in between bigger makes.

Have a good Sunday!

Walk in peace.
