Crafting for good. Here’s another nice tutorial from Flossie Teacakes. I love finding inspirational new blogs. this one is a winner.
I’d actually never heard of Wiggly Bags, but following the link that she sent, found that they are bags that children undergoing treatment for cancer use to hold their central line, which will be with them throughout their treatment to give medicines and take blood (thus avoiding the need for needles). So that the line (that’s the ‘wiggly’) doesn’t get dirty or pulled while playing each child needs a wiggly bag to keep it in. Sarah Hill (Director of Family Support at the Liberty Rose Trust) told me that a child will often have their line with them on a constant basis for around 18 months and so the wiggly bag that holds it will become a big part of their daily life and the child will often become very attached to it. The bags are needed for children of all ages, from toddlers to teenagers and so there’s a call for bags bearing pictures of animals, fairies, dinosaurs, rockets…but there’s also a real need for bags that teenagers will be happy to wear.
