As crafters, the reasons we create are many. Just one may be to spread a little bit of peace into the world, to make a small but meaningful difference in one person's life through a simple act of crafting with intention. Mama to Mama seeks to find ways to connect handcrafters with mothers, children and families in need of a little bit of handmade love.
The first project, due December 10th, is gathering newborn caps for a Maine-based organization that benefits Haiti, and offers an easy PDF pattern for making knotted caps from old T-shirts. Read all of the details, and send 'em in. A family at our school recently adopted 3 beautiful children from a Haitian orphanage, so our family has been particularly sensitive to the need in that struggling country. Luckily, I have a boxful of old tees :), and my girls will love helping with the choosing & sewing. I'm personally grateful for a good service start to our holiday gifting and wanting, and will post pictures of our caps soon. And want to see yours!
