Baby, its getting cold up here!

This morning, I did something a little different. I sewed mittens for homeless children. I used a pattern from Hancock, and leftover fleece from several projects and parts of new, cozy, cuddly blankets that had already been cut up for other projects. I cut them out a week ago, but I did most of the sewing today. I had enough fabric to make 46 pairs. (I have 14 pairs left to sew.) Hope that when they are added to the rest made by the guild that they will make a difference for all the little people in the soon to be cold Midwest. Quick, easy way to help someone else feel a little warmer this coming winter season.

  1. Thank you for taking the time to make such an important difference.

    I just read a great suggestion for helping the homeless as the winter months approach.

    You can cheaply and easily buy hand warmers at ski shops and then hand them out to the homeless during the cold nights.
