Wiggle it...

Last week the wonderful Emily of Strawberry Patch Ramblings put up a blog post asking for help making Wiggly bags for a local charity and children's hospital.

I have seen these little pouches mentioned online before, so I am guessing that these useful little bags are used by children all over the world to carry their hickman lines whilst receiving treatment for cancer.

Emily posted a super tutorial, and some background info on this particular call for help.


I made these 2 within an hour, including choosing the fabrics and popping out to the shops for more tape midway through; they really are not complicated, and now I know how to do French seams, bonus!


These can be made with a couple of 5" or 6" charm squares, 2m of cotton tape, (which I think holds far better than ribbon) and a tiny bit of velcro.

What are you waiting for?

  1. Oh well done you. I hope to get some time to make some this week but all sewing stuff is packed away until after tomorrow. So rather at lose ends now as all the food stuff is ready for tomorrow as well. Might have to take a nap!!

  3. Thank you Hadley, I missed Emily's post about the Wiggly bags.
    My best friends' grand-daughter has just been diagnosed with cancer, she is only 8. She is receiving chemo & I know she has a Hickman line, so I will be able to make this for her & hopefully for other @ the hospital children too.
