Australia Fires – How You Can Help

Hello! Welcome to Couch Surfer Crochet!

Can you believe it’s 2020 already?!? I hope this year brings you lots of love and happiness (and yarn)!

As you all probably know, the wildfires in Australia have been devastating to the local wildlife. I won’t share any of those photos, as they can be very upsetting. But I do want to share some idea on ways you can help!

I know I’m surrounded by an amazing group of crafters and creators, and I know we could all pitch in with our skills and help those in need.

These photos come from a Facebook post from the Animal Rescue Collective Craft Guild. You can find the post HERE with all the FAQs.

The first few photos share sewing patterns, which I’m not the best at, but I wanted to be sure to share any relevant info I could find.

I’m getting started this afternoon on some nest and pouches. This is a great way to use up scrap yarn and be helpful at the same time!

The listed shipping address are:
