While browsing a favorite blog this morning I was reading about a craft project this lady was participating in. I decided that it would be a really good idea to get in on the 'action'. I haven't read much about the program but I did check out their site. Every year they get donations of a certain crafty variety to give to kids of all ages who are battling cancer.
This year they are looking for beanies of all sizes and all types-knit, crochet, fabric. As well as homemade tote bags to use in the hospitals. What a fun way to help the younger people who are going through such a tough time. All the info is on their site if you'd like to participate.
I am going to try to make several hats and maybe a tote to donate, I have enough yarn to make hats for the entire country so half the work is already done ;). I figure if I can do one hat every evening by the end of the week, I'll have lots to donate...that is if my poor fingers cooperate.
Here are a few links to patterns if you'd like to participate...although ANY pattern can be made in any color.
very easy, very basic beginner knit pattern
20 minute sewed tote bag. Such a fun/easy pattern
sewed fleece hats for those who sew
There are so so so so many patterns online, the options are endless for these tough kids. I'll post an update when I get some of my stuff done.
OH YA this is Pinterest Thursday...I'll post later about that...I have some pinterest plans for today...
