2010 National Community Service Project – U.S. Troops Drawstring Bag

Posted on Oct 20, 2012

Operation Care Package is a non-profit organization that receives, fills and mails drawstring bags to deployed service men and women from all branches of the armed forces. The drawstring bag pattern for this project was designed by Laura Martell of The Creative Thimble. The 14” drawstring bag holds a filled gallon baggie. The troops use the bags for personal use and some pass them on to the children.

Northern Nevada Chapter made 185 ditty bags to contribute to this project.

For those wishing to continue making these bags for our chapter, HERE are the instructions.
