I sent off this red scarf for Craft Hope's Project 6. If you haven't heard of Craft Hope, it's an organization that collects handmade items and distributes them to worthy organizations. Through past projects they've collected sock monkeys for kids at the Little Heroes Preschool Burn Camp and dolls for an orphanage in Nicaragua. They also recently raised $30,000+ for Doctors Without Borders through their Craft Hope for Haity Etsy shop.
This is for the Orphan Foundation's Red Scarf Project. The Orphan Foundation helps young adults who grew up in the foster care system make the transition to college or the workforce. See? Worthy cause. The red scarves will go into Valentine's Day care packages.
Sorry for the crummy picture. I only have my cell phone camera because my other camera bit the dust. And by "bit the dust," I mean it was dropped on the floor for the 114th time. Evidently it had a 113 drop limit.
I used the Star Stitch pattern on the Craft Hope site. The pattern was a little tricky for me, but I got the hang of it and I think it turned out pretty cool. I can't wait to see their next project!
