January 2012 - Monthly Project Announcement

Welcome 2012! 
This is Jeannie, the founder of Annabelle's Wish along with one of her daughters, adopted from China.
For our first project of the year we will be sewing a special request for Annabelle's Wish. Annabelle's Wish works with a variety of orphanages and foster homes in China serving nearly 2000 children. We've been asked to sew solid colored bloomers to go with some dresses that will be sent to China for the summer months. We need at least 10 each of the following sizes:

3 Months - kmccalope from SouthernlySweet will be sewing 10!
6 Months - Garilyn from It's Time to Sew will be sewing 10!
9 Months - Sarah from Fabric Seeds will be sewing 5! Sunni from Love Affair With My Brother will be sewing 5!
12 Months - Jodi will be sewing 5! I'm sewing 5!
18 Months - Melissa will be sewing 10!
2T - Pam from Threading My Way will be sewing 10!
3T - I'm sewing 10!
4T - Kelly will be sewing 5! Lana from Elfqueenof5 will be sewing 5!
Bonnie at Fishsticks Designs in sewing 1 in each size!

I will be working with the Simple 30 Min. Shorts from Create H.O.P.E. Designs.
This is such a quick and easy pattern to sew and adding a little elastic to the legs will make them the perfect bloomers. I'll share the details of adding the elastic for those who would like to give it a try.
The newest Create H.O.P.E. Designs pattern, the Ruffled Diaper Cover would also work perfectly.
 Both of these patterns are sold to benefit the outreach of Create H.O.P.E. Designs whose purpose is to provide care for orphans and their communities worldwide, so this is a unique opportunity to help orphans on both ends of the sewing project!

So whose up to helping me reach this goal this month?
If you are, please comment below or email me with the size(s) and number you'd like to contribute so I'll know which sizes I'll need to focus on. 
Thanks in advance!!! :)

I can do the ten in a size 2, Kristy. Is there a time limit if I take longer than the month? Do colours matter? As you know, I have the 30 minute shorts pattern, but I've also purchased the Ruffled Diaper Cover, so might give that a try. Hope you get lots of offers of help!!!

I would love to participate. Put me down for ten in a size 3 months. I Depending on your response I may add more. I will start them tonight.

Kristy said...

Perfect! Thanks ladies! We are off to a great start! You can email me whenever you are ready to ship for my address. Let me know if you have any other questions and I'm very happy to have your participation!

I have a bloomers pattern already. I will have to check the sizes. If it has a 6 m, I'll do at least 5 of them.

Garilyn S said...

It does have 6 months, so I will do at least 5 of those. Any solid color?

Melissa said...

Is it better for them to be diaper covers, or longer bloomers (shorts w/elastic legs?) My size choice will be determined by the answer, depending on what patterns I already have ;) Thanks!

Kristy said...

Hey Melissa! Either is fine, whichever you prefer making. They will be worn under little sundresses if that helps you decide. Thanks for your interest and willingness to help! Let me know when you decide and I'll add you to the list! :)

Jodi said...

Hi Kristy.. I'd LOVE to help! I'm going to order the Ruffled Diaper Cover and I'll make 5 of the 12 month size. I'm going to try and make more if I can. So any solid color is fine? When is the deadline that these have to be done? Thanks Kristy!!
