I spent the morning placing 100+ gently used books into book bags made using fun novelty print fabrics.
These will be donated to a high school for teen parents and their children. GBL Parker started working on this project in January and it was our major goal for the year.
It's fabulous to see this goal coming to fruition!
This week's bag of the week has a Parisian theme!
It's bag 61,769
And it's amongst this pile of 105 bags made by the Parker GBL chapter this year.
Each bag in this pile will have a children's book placed in it and then they'll be donated to underprivileged children.
The director of the Goddard School in Parker, Jolie invited me back to speak to another class about GBL! It's my second visit this year.
So I took along a batch of white bags for the students to decorate with crayons.
They love individualizing their free reusable bag ♥️👌
Some of the students even wanted to decorate the inside 👌😂
I also took along a trunk full of patchwork floor cushions stuffed with fabric and batting scraps to donate to the classrooms
The bag I am highlighting this week is number 69,753!
The bag will be given to a teacher during an upcoming classroom visit.
I am going to do a school visit Friday with Pre-K students to tell them about GBL and teach Reduce, Reuse, Recycle. Each child will get a plain white bag to draw on and decorate with crayons in class during my visit.
I'll also take several floor cushions along for the classrooms, they are stuffed with fabric and batting scraps ♥️👌
For the third week in a row, the bag of the week is a fun jungle print!
Bag number 61,796
All the jungle print bags I've featured recently were made from fabric donated to Parker GBL by a quilt club friend of mine named Carin. She had some delightfully fun jungle prints to de-stash and kindly donated them to the project.
