Bandar and Bhaaloo needs volunteers who are skilled at sewing and would love to put their talents to good use by creating whimsical one-of-a-kind stuffed animals. If you can provide the sewing machine, we will provide the materials (your selection of pattern - bear, monkey, elephant, bunny; fabric; stuffing; etc.). The fabrics we use are donated saris and other Indian clothing, usually silk or rayon, often with beautiful patterns and embellishments.  It's up to you to be creative, using the fabric in a way that gives each animal its unique personality.  Bandar and Bhaaloo animals are not toys (although they are very irresistible); they are designed to be loved and admired.
