Iraqi Bundles of Love

"It is a project intended to help people who are just trying to get on with their lives–clothe their children, make a living, create something beautiful. And best of all, it is in a language I totally speak–the language of fibers."

I read about this effort a month or so ago on someone's blog (sorry, I can't remember where) but ran across it again today on Sew. Mama, Sew! Blog. Click on the link and go read about it.

I wanted to participate when I first read about it, but was held back by having to decide which fabrics I wanted to send....lol....which of my lovelies would I part with?

No worry. Sew, Mama, Sew has taken all the worry out of it. For $15 they will send a bundle containing all this!!!
  • 5 yards of new fabric
  • 16 sewing needles in a case
  • 32 pearlized pins on a wheel
  • 1 tomato pincushion
  • 1 pair folding scissors
  • 1 150-yd spool white thread
Not only is it generous, thanks to their partnership with wholesale fabric vendors, but the price includes the shipping! It's easy to do, just Click on the this link which takes you to the SMS shop and you can purchase your bundle there. So easy.

Not much going on sewing-wise here ~ but soon. I have stuff cut and ready to go. The dining room table is covered with pieces and parts, so I need to get going on it. Soon.
