Craft Hope

I have decided to brave the needle and thread and participate in this years Craft Hope, Project 2

Here is a little info on what it is:


Craft Hope is working with Eren (Vintage Chica) and the ORPHANetwork to provide handmade, soft-bodied dolls for the children of the Casa Bernabe Orphanage in Nicaragua . Many of the children come from abusive situations and the dolls will allow the children to develop the mothering and nurturing instincts that most little girls have.

Here is what we are needing… Of course, the dolls must be handmade. We will need girl, as well as boy dolls. We ask that the dolls have brown hair and brown eyes, since we would like them to resemble the children they are going to. You may use any pattern you like.

If you have never tried sewing a doll, it’s okay! Just give it a shot. We aren’t looking for perfection, we are looking for the love that goes into making the item. This is also a good project to get your children involved. You can even put a little heart inside the doll. Be creative, it’s your creation that will be loved no matter what.

The deadline to get the dolls to Craft Hope is June 13th.

I have never made a doll so this will be a fun adventure. I am thinking of getting the boys involved also and maybe creating some boy dolls. We shall see. I bet I will be lucky to get 1 done, not to mention 3. But you never know...
