When I found out about them I wanted to do something to help. I saw on their Facebook page that they needed people to sew curtains for their latest project - the Detroit Rescue Mission Genesis House. So I volunteered to make curtains. I then got an e-mail saying that the curtains had been taken care of, but would I be interested in creating some drawstring bags to give the children in the shelter to keep their things in? Would I! Bags are what I do! So I happily committed to making 20 drawstring bags with smiley faces on the front. Here's the result:
They are made of brightly colored canvas with felt faces on the front. Each is lined with a different cotton print. The lining forms a casing at the top, and each face has a tongue that matches the lining. Aren't they so cute?
