1  CRAFTING FOR GOOD AND NOT EVIL / Crafty Charitable/Social Causes / Sweet Dreams Project on: January 21, 2008 08:08:45 AM
A nurse in our community started a program called "Sweet Dreams" as a way to give back to the community that helped her as a child battling bone cancer.

This is a pillow case project.  She sends pillow cases to the children's hospitals in our area to be give to the children that have entended hospital stays.  The nusrses at the hospitals say that the pillow cases bring the children joy.They also say that the children have multiple uses for the pillow cases from trick or treat bags to bags, to carry their "stuff" home from the hosiptal.

The pillow cases are currently running low and the hospital is calling for more.  Can you or will you help?

The pillow cases must be new and unwashed.  You can sew a new pillow case or embellish a store bought one.  They can be embellished with items that will not come off or that can be washed.  Paints are fine.  I have had a great time picking out children's fabric to make the pillow cases.

My son has taken this on as a cub scout project.  If you are interested in donating fabric or pillow cases please IM me for more info.

5  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / NARUTO Mascot- Check him out! on: January 02, 2008 03:58:28 PM
I made this Naruto mascot for my 9 year old son.  He thinks I'm the coolest Mom as do the kids in the neighborhood.  I love that! Wink

This is my second felt mascot. Smiley

I didn't have a pattern. I made one by drawing him first and then cutting the drawing into pieces.

Thanks for looking!  Comments are LOVED! Smiley

6  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / My FIRST Felt Mascot- Hello Easter Kitty!! on: December 30, 2007 03:49:03 PM
OK- so I am new here to Crafster and new to felt mascots.  I'm in love with it and can't wait to make a bunch more things and participate in swaps.

Here's my first completed project- I do want to mention that I did not have a pattern and my stitching is not so great!  I've made notes of all my mistakes so next time it will be better.  I found the picture on the internet, printed it off and made my own pattern.  I ordered the book though. Wink

What do you think?

Hello Bunny!

Hello Kitty!
