February 2022: Wildlife Pouches

This month, we are creating wildlife pouches for charities that specialise in the care of Australian animals. These pouches can be donated to charities across Australia, to aid in protecting wildlife that are injured, sick or in need.

Wildlife pouches are a great project for any sewing level, from beginner to advanced. If you're passionate about animals, this is the perfect sewalong for you to get involved in!

Choose to create a pouch for one, or more, of the charities listed below. Each charity has different requirements so just follow their instructions.
