The International Fund for Animal Welfare is asking people to sew mittens for injured koalas. IFAW campaigner Josey Sharrad says:

Koalas with burns to their paws need to have them treated with burn cream and wrapped in bandages. They then need special cotton mittens to cover the dressings. All this needs changing daily so we’re asking if you can help us by sewing koala mittens – as many as they can before the fire season truly hits.

Click here for a special pattern and make your mittens from clean 100% cotton. Old sheets, tea towels or cotton t-shirts are ideal.

Send your mittens to IFAW at 6 Belmore Street, Surry Hills 2010

It’s easy even if you’ve never sewn before - just a simple pocket. More info here.
