March is National Sewing Month (also, National Crafting Month). Can you sew a straight line? Sure you can!
Here’s a way to celebrate and bring some smiles to the faces of children/teens battling cancer and other serious illnesses.
Make a Pillowcase. Or two or three.
It doesn’t take much time and only two fabrics (three if you want to add a small trim). I picked up some fabric at Joann Fabrics – some of it on sale and I had coupons. One will be Soccer fabric w/Red trim ($6.07 including taxes). Another will be Hearts on Purple with Purple trim ($7.07 including taxes). The Third will be Purple with Pastel Butterflies with Purple trim ($6.07 including taxes). That’s less than $20 for three Pillowcases – Smiles on a sick child’s face – PRICELESS!
Donate your completed pillowcases to ConKerrCancer(dot)Org. Check their site for a Regional Coordinator who will pass them on to a local hospital.
Sew, guess what I’ll be doing tomorrow? Will post pictures when they are done.
