Conkerr Cancer

Do you have 20 minutes?? Make a pillowcase for Conkerr Cancer! So easy and it is certain to make a child smile. Can't beat that reward, right?

I am so inspired by the work of Craft Hope, that thousands of women are gathering all over the planet to work toward one cause. Makes me feel powerful. And useful. For so many of us with little ones at home it isn't feasible for us to get out and serve people everyday. But Craft Hope gives us a way that we can continue doing what we enjoy doing anyway (crafting!), only we can do it for a greater cause. Because of this, I gathered some friends together one morning and we cranked out 14 pillowcases for Conkerr Cancer, which is the current project for Craft Hope right now (deadline is Sept 15th if you want to join!). Our particular pillowcases will bring smiles to the children of our local hospital, Arkansas Children's Hospital.

**If you're looking for an easy pillow case tutorial, Dana has a great one over at MADE.

Be sure to keep up with Craft Hope, as she is always listing a new project. There just might be something you can help with!

So, wanted to first say thanks for your comment on my post, I think that's just about exactly what I needed to hear. =) And, WOW you make such lovely things! I've been feeling the itch lately to try to learn how to sew, but don't really have the time/motivation right now. Maybe one day when the kids are a bit older.... It sure is tempting, though, when I see such beautiful hand-made things!
