I don't know how many of you have noticed the Craft Hope button displayed below, but it's time you checked it out!
Craft Hope organizes projects that allow crafters to reach out and do something good for people, or in this case, animals in need. Tonight, I am encouraging, urging, and even hounding you to click on the link and sign up for the most recent project.
In this project, crafters are being asked to make rags to help clean animals (particularly dolphins and sea turtles) affected by the oil spill. This project is so amazingly simple, but will make such a difference. If you have a few old t-shirts, then you can help...even if you don't own a sewing machine! Cut those tees into the suggested sizes and either hem or fringe and knot the edges. Put together a set of 10 or 20 and mail them before the July 3 deadline. THESE DON'T NEED TO BE PRETTY...they are just going to be ruined after a few uses. Get your kids to help, pass this link or the craft hope link along to anyone and everyone, but most importantly...sign up to help.
In the next few days, I will post tutorials on some rag projects that you can do in very little time, with very little effort, and with very little money.
PLEASE LEND A HAND!
