Craft Hope: Handmade Crafts for a Cause is totally unique in the craft/sewing book genre... and I'm so grateful to be a part of something so meaningful.
Author, Jade Sims, assembled a wonderful crew of designers to contribute a varied array of projects that are perfectly paired with an appropriate charity. As this online crafting revolution gains speed, it's wonderful to have a guide that channels all that creative energy into handmade goods for those with the most need. Craft Hope is that guide. It feels powerful to turn through each page and see all of the possibilities that any home sewer/crafter can create to make a tangible difference in someone's life. These backpacks are destined for The Little Red Wagon Foundation (founded by a 12 year old!) and other organizations that support underprivileged children across the globe. They sew up quickly and can be made in bunches!
Lark Crafts. With all of the shirts I collected for ruffled skirts... I set aside my softest ones for some of these... maybe you will, too.
