People looking for a way to help as devastating wildfires continue to destroy land and animals in Australia have come up with a great idea to make Joey Pouches. Knitters and seamstresses around the world are hand-making pouches, nests, and mittens for the beautiful animals hurt and displaced by these horrendous fires. Animals ranging from kangaroos, koalas, wombats, and wallabies. It’s truly heartbreaking and you can help these poor animals in need by making this Joey Pouch out of scrap fabric or even old clothes and sending it to @AnimalRescueCraftGuild
There are many items needed here are a few.
Here is the tutorial to sew a Joey Pouch for the poor little kangaroos harmed by these terrible fires. You start by cutting your pattern in a basic U shape, @FreePatternDownload
You lay your fabric out right sides together, your lining fabric will be larger than your outer fabric at the top to create a flap.
Then you just sew it right sides together in the sides and the bottom curve, leave the top open.
Then you just flip your pouch right side out and fold the lining layer over, press and stitch along the outside for a nice finished top seam.
These poor animals have suffered such tragedy with the destruction of their natural habitat, one look into there sweet little innocent eyes will bring tears to yours. If you can help please do, there are several outreach rescue organizations in this link to @GoodMorningAustralia
