If you're not familiar with the Craft Hope project and blog, you simply must check it out. From their "about" page: Craft Hope is a love inspired project designed to share handmade crafts with those who need them. It is our hope to combine our love for crafting and desire to help others into a project to make a difference around the world.
Craft Hope's most recent project was a pillowcase drive - where all pillowcases made will be donated to ConKerr Cancer, a wonderful project that provides colorful, cheerful pillowcases to kids with cancer during their hospital stays.
I made seven pillowcases, and dropped them off at my favorite local fabric store.
The Craft Hope pillowcase drive is over, but there is still a big push to have as many pillowcases as possible made and donated to ConKerr during the month of September. You can visit the ConKerr website to find out where to donate your cases.
Pillowcases are super-easy to make. And here's a fantastic little tutorial to get you started.
(I used up a bunch of fabric from my stash, and, as you can see, I clearly love polka dots!)
