Red Cross Trauma Teddies

It’s Christmas knitting season but it’s great to squeeze in the odd Trauma Teddy for Red Cross where possible. They’re a great use of yarn stash and go to help an incredibly beautiful and important cause.

For the uninitiated, Red Cross volunteers knit Trauma Teddies for distribution to children in hospital. It’s a little bit of comfort and love to help them get through a tough time.

Here are a few I’ve put together:

If you’re interested in making a few yourself, visit http://www.redcross.org.au/nsw/supportus_reg_vol_opps.htm

You can get the pattern from the Red Cross in hard copy, or download it from http://www.squidoo.com/traumateddypattern , it’s in a few other places too.
