Childhood Cancer Support
Childhood Cancer Support is a children’s cancer charity with practical, hands-on support for the Queensland paediatric oncology community. They provide family support, home away from home accommodation and transport services to children with cancer, and their families from regional, rural and remote locations.
Talk like a Pirate Day is a nationally recognised major fundraiser for Childhood Cancer Support. While dressed up in your best pirate costume, funds are raised for the Childhood Cancer Support charity to go towards their support for their patients and families.
Sewalongs are a great way to get inspired by what everyone creates, while giving to a worthy cause. If you’re new to sewing or embroidering this is a great chance to get involved and have fun no matter what the outcome. Any excuse to put your sewing and embroidery machines to good use is a great one.
For this month’s sewalong, we’re going to contribute to Childhood Cancer Support and their Talk like a Pirate Day by creating pirate bandanas for the kids to wear.
We have sewn these bandanas in a few different ways. We have created them using a whole square method, patchwork method and also added an extra touch with some embellishment using the ScanNCut or applique.
