Craft Hope Charity Project

May 18, 2009

For the past few years I have been donating my crafts and/or money to various charities. I tend to choose animal charities, like Safe Haven for Cats, because that is where my heart is, but thanks to Twitter I have found a very worthwhile children's charity to donate to, Craft Hope.

According to their website, "Craft Hope is a faith-based, love inspired project designed to share handmade crafts with those less fortunate. 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."

They are currently taking donations for Project #2 - handmade dolls for the children of Casa Bernabe, an orphanage in Nicaragua. I couldn't resist making a little doll, so here is my contribution:

We were asked to make the dolls with darker skin and darker hair, so the dolls would resemble the children. I was super happy that I got to use my new Eco-Fi cashmere tan felt from Felt-O-Rama for this project too. 

My doll was made using Crafty Carnival's Silly Girl pattern. I tweaked the pattern a bit by using felt and giving her braids. I am also thinking of adding two strips of fabric for straps, since she looks a little naked to me. 

If you would like to whip up a little doll to send to the children, you can find the information here. The deadline is June 13.
