During the last little bit I have been busy sewing a few things for a new charity I have come into contact with. I love, love the opportunity to share a little bit of my time and talent to help someone else.
At one time I introduced Jerika (my oldest daughter) and her Girl Scout troop to tying fleece blankets for a local shelter as part of their Silver award.
What a great way for our youngers to find a way to give back and learn a new skill at the same time. Most of the sewing projects for charity are simple and quick. The patterns used are free.
It’s a perfect combination for everyone– beginner or advanced, young or old.
It’s a great way to give back. We have enough supplies sitting around and sometimes we have enough time to steal in between busy and busy to sit at the machine and stitch a few things for someone else.
For whatever the cause or reason here are a few of my favorites that I have been involved with or have been introduced to by someone else.
