Project: Smile Bags - Community Sewing Day

Stitching Up The World is organizing a Community Sewing Day for Operation Smile, a Medical Charity that provides FREE surgeries to children born with facial deformities around the world.

Operation Smile is in need of Smile Bags. Smile Bags are given to each child after their surgery and are filled with goodies like hygiene items, crayons, coloring books, toys, a mirror and many more items.

Help us reach our goal to make 300 smile bags for Operation Smile by volunteering on our project day! All supplies are provided to make the bags and no sewing experience needed!
