Kit Bags

Kit bags for Days for Girls International
All Crafts for Charity (a Yahoo group) selects a charity for each month. April's charity is Days for Girls International an organization that provides washable feminine hygiene kits to women and girls in impoverished nations worldwide.

Twenty-two kit bags
for Days for Girls International
I used some fabric odds and ends and yardage to make 22 kit bags for this project. Finding reasonably priced cord for the drawstrings was a challenge, but I used clothesline cord. Because the cord frayed when cut, I singed the ends to melt the polyester. Two packages of clothesline was just enough for 22 kit bags, pattern link below.
