I'm a Girl Scout leader, in case you didn't know, and it's cookie season. I made this donation boot for our cookie booth! Admittedly, it was not my idea. One of my parent's said her daughter's old troop did it one year, but all she could remember was that they had a boot for donations.
I cut the sleeve of one of my husband's old ratty, really-shouldn't-wear to work uniforms and used that to sew a small bag. I hemmed the top of the bag so when I slip it in the boot and fold the top over the boot there are no cut lines.
