As some of you might know, my son in law is leaving for Afghanistan/Tarin Kowt on the 30th December and I read on Jan-Maree's blog about these laundry bags, because all the issued laundry bags look alike the laundry often gets mixed up and goes missing.
Jan-Maree and her group have made personalised laundry bags for some soldiers so they can recognise their laundry quicker on it's return to the base.
With Lee leaving at the end of this week I made his laundry bag today, it is lined and I used some left over backing I had. I think it turned out lovely and I am sure Lee will be able to pick out his laundry quickly from the others.
If any of you would like to do something for our soldiers to make their life away from home easier, this would be a great gift.
Happy to send you the instructions, measurements and to send them on to Afghanistan.
Happy New Year to you all
