Australian Children's Hospitals Doll Drive

Friday, January 4, 2013



I love the Dolly Donation community! When we all band together we can make such a difference in a child's life.... and we don't need to look far from home either ....

... Woman's shelters ... Children's Homes .... flood victims ... quake victims .. Children's Hospitals..



And that's what the lovely ladies behind The Sewing Library thought too. This amazing online Australian Sewing Community has banded together to make and donate dolls to the local children's hospitals all over Australia in different states.

I have given them permission to distribute my Advance Dolly Donations Sewing Patterns to all those wishing to take part in the drive.




Start Date: Now ♥  1/4/2013

Closed

Goal: 1000 dolls! 
 Boys and Girls please :)

 Skin Tone: All skin tones

You don't need to be Australian to take part, they are accepting dolls from all over the world to comfort sick children in the hospital wards across Australia.

If you would like to take part in the doll drive please pop over to their Facebook Fan page and let them know or send Cassandra an e-mail: bluenpurplepenguin@gmail.com

As always I'd love to see all of your creations so please stay in touch :)

Happy New Year Sewing!
