Sewing for a Cause

May is almost ending but there is still a week left to squeeze out some projects AND help others!  Forgive me for not having my own photos yet, but I wanted to get word out while there was still a little time left for these two sewing opportunities.

Applique Chick is offering up this super cute, in-the-hoop doll (there is also a boy version) FREE until the end of the month if you are willing to send her a completed doll. They are going to be collected and sent to a missionary family in Asia that will be providing them to local children. The dolls are offered in both 5x7 and larger sizes--be sure to check out her website for more information!

Also, Cole from Cole's Corner and Creations has asked for help in rounding up some supplies and toys that her cousin can take to Nicaragua.  In addition to providing medical care, the Centers of Hope Medical Mission will be providing small toys and lovies to the children they will see.  You can see the full post about that here.

To make it even easier to help others, Cole has posted a free tutorial on how to make lovies.  Here's the fabric I'm going to use to make some:

This cute piggy flannel is nice and soft :)
I find that people who craft tend to be people who care, so I hope you join me in participating in these two great projects!
