As I mentioned in our project announcement post, we have some really great items being provided as giveaways this month from some amazing sponsors!
First up, Figgy's Patterns!
When I contacted Shelly about the possibility of supporting our project this month, not only did I get a "yes!" I got a "and how about a little extra?" :) Ummm...you bet!
So, there are 2 items from Figgy's being donated to our Monthly Project Prizes!
One of this month's participating seamstresses will win the incredibly stylish Banyan pattern!

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you for these generous gifts!
Oh....how to win???
Participate in this month's sewing project here at Hopeful Threads. We're sewing shorts to be donated through the organization Children In Families.
Sew your shorts for donation. Take a picture and add it (or have me add it) to our Shorts Sewing Flickr Album. Then, email me for shipping address. Mail your shorts to me!
They'll all be traveling to Cambodia with a friend of mine that makes regular trips.
At the end of the month, Tuesday, July 31st, I'll announce the GRAND TOTAL of shorts contributed for our monthly project and select winners for all of the sponsored prizes from the entries in our Shorts Sewing Flickr Album! International seamstresses welcome! Each pair of shorts sewn for donation will be counted as an entry. An entry # is added below the picture as a comment by me once the photo is added to our album. Winners will be randomly selected from all eligible entries, announced here and under their photo July 31st, 2012. Winners are asked to respond within 48 hours of announcement, claiming their prize and providing shipping information if applicable. One prize per winner. *Please note, shorts do not have to be received by me by July 31st, but I do ask that you ship them no later than August 5th.*
So what are you waiting for???
Let's get shorts sewing for these sweet little boys and have a chance at some really fun prizes at the same time! Photos are already being added to our album and a great assortment of shorts sizes have been committed to by so many of you! Thank you all so much for making this a reality!
I love sewing with you!
