A bit of fleece was leftover from clothes I had made Canaan and Evie, my grandchildren in England. So I started using it to make hats and scarves to donate to a organization that ministers to childre.
Sew for Kids is the blog I found that organizes the needs for the Lakota children on the reservation.
It was a wonderful pleasure piecing together the hats and scarves.....I will continue to sew for this organization. They are greatly supported by groups and accept sewn items, yarn items, etc. There is a monthly project tab on their blog.
I used a great pattern for most of the hats (Simplicity 5317), and another pattern (McCall's pattern M5772 for the Chili Pepper Hat, and the scarves. I did double up the fleece for the hats as it is extremely cold on the Pine Ridge Reservation. I also lined the pink scarf with a piece of flannel leftover from a nightgown for Evie.
hat and scarf for Canaan.
really cute jacket I made for Evie. This jacket is really pieces together, but came out so cute and cheerful.
It has been lovely sharing these fleece items with you.....
Using up fabric is actually very creative, relaxing and rewarding....
