craft hope for creatures

I successfully completed my mission to upcycle a variety of items into washclothes/washrags to send to the Craft Hope mission.
This was one example of using the pantlegs of stained/outgrown fleece 18 month pants and the shirt sleeve of an outgrown toddler t-shirt to make the hem. (not sure why the top is pointy looking for this pic - it isn't in real life!). I used fabric paint to add the "hope" words.
I "hope" my supply helps save at least one animal from this horrific environmental disaster.

Crafting for the Creatures

Are you as devastated as I am at the images of the wildlife in the Gulf right now? Have basic sewing, knitting or crafting skills and ready to H.E.L.P?

visit Craft Hope and find out information on simple quick projects you can do to help dolphin and sea turtles. I have a pile of stained kids' t-shirts, baby towels, spit rags and will be upcycling them tonight for the cause. Will you join me?
THEY need our help.

Stop the order....

Gotta check out the gorgeous fabrics at Fabricworm

Wish I could win the lottery

Project #3,025 bubble skirts

Ok, so it isn't really project 3,025. More realistic would be project number 125. Considering I think I blew out my bobbin well (AGAIN) it really might take awhile to get these done.

I adore bubble skirts and how fun would playing around in one be? DD1 thinks dressing like DD2 would be fun so perhaps I will get to this soon?
