March is National Sewing Month

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.
