Sew For Kids - Fabric Giveaway!!!

Hi folks!!! For those of you that don't know me, I'm Jennifer, and I like to sew!!! The past few months I have been involved with sewing for projects at  Hopeful Threads . Kristy at Hopeful Threads does a great job at picking different charities or causes that we can sew projects for. 

This month, we are sewing for the organization Sew For Kids. This helps new mothers and children of all ages of the Lakota Indians, which live on the Pine Ridge and Rosebud Reservations. Sew For Kids help provide clothing, blankets, and other things for children, and they also provide supplies to help promote breastfeeding for new mothers.  


Last year after seeing the special on 20/20 with Diane Sawyer Children of the Plains , about the Lakota children,  my heart has gone out to these people.  I was just heart broken. After discovering the Sew For Kids organization just last month, I decided that I wanted to participate in their monthly projects.  After talking with Kristy at Hopeful Threads last month, I found out that her October project was to sew things to donate to Sew For Kids. I was so excited!!! I told Kristy I wanted to do a give away of fabric for this project.  I wanted to make sure that someone could donate for this project without having the worry of what fabric to use. 


I am giving away a fabric bundle of 4 different fabrics, 1 yard each!!! IMHO they are great fabrics to use.  Included is a vibrant blue/purple/brown cotton knit, a beautiful pink/purple paisley flannel, a cute green with butterflies flannel, and a soft cozy blue minky. There are so many items that can be sewn from this bundle: Hats, scratch mits, infant nightgowns, receiving blankets, nursing pads, home made wipes, home made burp cloths. You name it!! Here is a pattern link of some free patterns and tutorials that Sew For Kids has provided. 


To enter this fabulous give away, please leave a comment this blog post with a contact email and/or "Like" my facebook page, That's Sew You

Thank you and good luck!!!! The lucky winner will be chosen Monday, October 8, at 9am Mountain time.

Thanks for supporting Sew for Kids!
It's a great organization. I have donated hand made and purchased clothing to Pine Risge--the need for everything is so great there.
Everything is utilized. And the people are very appreciative.
