Iraqi Bundles of Love - Part II

I nearly let busyness get the best of me, but in the end, I finally sent my IBOL out today! The deadline to post bundles is on Tuesday, September 8th (extended by one day because of the Labor Day holiday). By the way, you do NOT need to get a specially marked APO Large Flat Rate Box, the regular Large Flat Rate Box will do. Just tell the postal worker that it's going APO and they will do the rest.

Here's the contents of my bundle:

All of this is destash, and a lot of it is 15-20 years old. I didn't realize that I had three full pincushions stuck all over with straight pins; I added a tapestry and two sharps. I've had that flowered challis and the heavier plaid blend for at least 15 years. Even when new it had a wrinkled texture, but when it came out of the wash it was very wrinkled. I hope the recipient does not mind, because I avoid ironing as though it were the Plague. The knitted baby hat has been in my closet for a while, and I figured that there must be at least one Iraqi woman who could use a baby hat in the coming months.

I didn't have a long enough length of ribbon to tie the bundle with, so I used white bias tape instead.

All done:

I hope that you will consider sending a last-minute IBOL to promote peace in the world.
