It’s Not All Mary Poppins

Dolly Donation

I love craft blogs. Just love them.

(Though have you ever noticed how many of them put seventy-gazillion posts per page? So that the scroll thingy at the side is a tiny sliver, and the slightest shift of the mouse has you suddenly twelve posts away from where you were? Why do they do that?)

While I was ooo-ing over all the pretty things and becoming inspired — oh! I could do that! — I stumbled across this wonderful idea:

Dollies for Haiti.

Seems there’s an orphanage there (I wonder if it’s the same one I heard about on the CBC?) which is looking for dolls to give to its children. They will be sent to Haiti from New York on March 14, so if you’re going to make one, they need to be shipped to New York in advance of that.

There’s a pattern here — if you have moderate sewing skills, it shouldn’t be difficult — and an FAQ page here.

I’m not sure if I can manage to get my act together in time, but I’m going to try! Not wanting to commit to something and not come through, I’ll sign up when I have a doll part-way completed. One doll for sure, maybe more.

Any other sewers interested in trying, follow the links and sign up!

  1. This is very timely; I’m supposed to be going to a craft night tomorrow with friends! We’re trying to set up a monthly thing where we either work on our current projects or learn from each other. I’ll definitely talk to everyone about it tomorrow!

    p.s. That thing you asked me to read? Send it along!

    Oh, a cute and cuddly knitted dolly! Some child will love cuddling that one!
