In the face of tragedy, it’s easy to feel helpless and lost, not knowing what to do or how to help. Here’s one way you can send some love to the people of Newtown, CT.
SewCalGal posted on her blog yesterday about the Newtown PTA requesting snowflakes to help decorate the school for the kids before they return from winter break. You can make snowflakes from anything – fabric, paper, embroidery – and send them so they arrive by January 12. The details are on SewGalGal’s blog.
I have about 8 or 9 different snowflake dies, so I’m going to make snowflakes from fabric.
If you want to help, but don’t have dies or an embroidery machine, you can help me make snowflakes by sending prepared fabric for me to cut.
Here’s what I plan to do: I’m going to take two pieces of fabric, and fuse them together with the right sides out. Then, I’m going to cut them into 5″ x 6″ rectangles. Then, I’m going to run them through the die cutter.
If you want to send me fused fabric cut into 5″ x 6″ rectangles, I will cut snowflakes for you. Make sure your fabric arrives by December 31, 2012 so that I can put a nice package together for Sandy Hook.
