The other day I stumbled across what has turned out to be my new favorite blog: Living with Punks. There are so many crafty tutorials and projects and fun things posted, I'm still reading through it. Love it!
Most recently, Susan at Living with Punks (blogger, mom, crafter, sewing maven-extraordinaire) posted an Applique T-Shirt Sew Along to benefit the children of Japan. I thought this was a super idea as I've been trying to come up with a good way to help the country that is reeling from that terrible Tsunami. The patterns for the appliques are provided at no cost by Chelsea from Pink Fig, you just have to supply the materials
We see so many terrible images of the devastation, but what we see isn't even the half of it. These people have lost everything. I mean, everything. Can you imagine?
So, I decided to join in on this Sew Along and make a few of the super-cute t-shirts that will be sent to the children of Japan. We may not speak the same language, but at least maybe they'll be able to smile at the thoughtfulness of others around the world.
Go here for the details on how to join the Sew Along and to download the pattern.
