    Smile Trick or Treat Bags, paying it forward.

    I decided that I wanted to do something & I had all of this Halloween fabric that I would never use. Our neighbor's Daughter works in the children's ward of our local hospital so I decided to make bags for the kids. The nurse's take them around to all the stations & set up booths for them to trick or treat. So here are my 60 bags ready to go. As much fun as I had making them I would rather there never be a sick child to have to use them.

    The bags are so cute and the kids will love and enjoy them. How sweet of you to do such a kind deed for these kids.
    Fabric is like money, no matter how much you have it's never enough.

    How very generous and thoughtful of you to do that for the kids! These are the kind of things that make kids so happy, and that they will remember for a long time! Kudos to you not only for making the bags and paying it forward, but for reminding us all to do the same!

    Doing something wonderful for others is kind of like having money in the bank, it just makes you feel good.

    That is so very special...those poor babies will be so happy and hopefully forget, if only for a minute why they are in the hospital...

    How clever and kind of you to think of such a wonderful way to put that fabric to good use. It will make it extra special for those kids.
