  1. Hi Crochetville! I'm doing a crochet-related project for my senior year of high school and I could definitely use some help as I'm starting to run out of time. I'm looking for individuals to send me newly or recently crocheted blankets. These blankets will be donated to my local crisis nursery which functions as a safe haven for children in rough situations. The kids there range in age from birth to 12 years old, so baby blankets as well as child sized blankets would be much appreciated! I have more information on the project in a google doc here. My goal is to have at least 10 blankets by the deadline, which is the end of March. As of posting this, I have 3. Thank you in advance for any and all support! Feel free to contact me here or via email: kittncakes@gmail.com -Elise

    More Charity Dishcloths

    I have been crocheting more dishcloths for an upcoming charity fundraiser. Here is a new pattern I just tried called The Ship's Helm. This is a super fast and easy dishcloth pattern. Here are three cloths I did in the pattern. Then I crocheted 2 star dishcloths using My Star Dishcloth pattern. These were done with different bits of leftover cotton scraps I had on hand.

    Colorful Mother Bears

    Here are two colorful Mother Bears I crocheted. These bears were in honor of Ellen who was a long time supporter of the Mother Bear Project. I crocheted the skirt on after the bear's body was done using this tutorial. I used I love this yarn in sherbets stripe which works out well to make a self-striping body.

    Field Poppy

  7. Hello, I recently launched a new website called Giving Artfully. Giving Artfully (www.givingartfully.com) is a web platform that connects crafters with organizations in need of handcrafted goods. Based on my own desire to contribute my skills/talents to support organizations of interest to me, I wanted to create a more effective or efficient way to connect with such opportunities . This led me to the idea of creating a platform that benefits both the crafters and recipients/organizations: Crafters have a “one-stop shop” to find volunteer opportunities to meet their skill sets and interests. All essential information will be on the platform as well as the ability to commit to donating. Community organizations have an alternative and free avenue to procure the goods they need. I'm a currently spreading the word to the crafting community about Giving Artfully. We have a Facebook and Pinterest Page, as well as a Ravelry group. Still in its infancy, I would love your feedback and any suggestions of organizations that may like to post on our site. You can go to our website, www.givingartfully.com to learn more about our mission and our platform. We currently have 25 clients who have posted over 3000 needs on our website and will continue to be adding more in the coming weeks. We have had over 200 donations in our short time and completed 3 projects. Hope you will join the Giving Artfully community! Thanks!

  8. The Warmth for Warriors is kicking off their 2013 Mini Christmas Stocking Project. Their goal is 2000 mini socks for the troops. They fill the mini stockings with a small bar of soap, shampoo, and/or body wash and are sending them to the troops as a little Christmas gift. You can crochet, knit or sew the stockings which need to be about 6 inches long. Here are a few samples of some of the socks I have crocheted and sewn for the drive. Here is the recycled denim stocking tutorial if you like to make some of them. So if you are interested in joining us in this drive, any help would be greatly appreciated. This is a worthy cause and we need lots of Christmas stockings to complete this project. Thank you in advance for your help.

HI my friends: As many of you may know i have adopted Foxie my pom and Munchkin my mini poodle from Compassionate Care Veternary Hospital in Norwich NY, and well i want to gather crocheted toys, for cats or dogs, pet mats, blankets crocheted so that Dr. Mandrachia can sell these items to raise funds for the Animal Rescue Team that brings to her all abused and puppy mill animals... She treats these pets, and keeps them til she finds them homes...

I do hope you can help me out.. hugs and blessings LIllibet aka Moomooo
  13. Hi all, been catching up with some donation things I did in the past few weeks, for Sept Delivery, to one of our local hospitals, and to the Emerg. Preg. Center here as well.. Im addig more to it, as this month goes on... The first one shown, is a preemie sized blankee, (as requested by a contact I have at my preferred hospital) and is adorned with a matching hat, as they all arel....the hats were fun , fast, and easy to make! I used smaller balls, and partial skeins on them.the first one is made from two strands of baby yarn, asst. colors, held togheter throughout.The hats take very little yarn I found out too. which is a perfect way to use up those partials and balls... Second shown, is a baby afghan made with all small 3 inch grannys, trimmed and bordered in pink! This also can be classified as a preemie blankee, i think, albeit a bit bigger than the first. I love the border in pink, so included of course, a pink hat! The third afghan was made with scraps and balls, of caron simply soft, for which I didn't have enough of it for anything else, and wanted to use it all up. All the solid color centers are caron ss, and the trim would be Hobby Lobbys I Love this Yarn, in white. THe hat that went the best with it is all white. and last but not least, is the fourth afghan, made from again, the two strands of the baby yarns held together.The border again, is HL I love this Yarn, in white. Then I made some ( loomed and crocheted)hats to go the the emerg. preg center, they will accompany anymore small baby afghans i send or am able to make in the mean time, or they will go as is, as simply hats! or I might add some little baby socks to them and make sets, see what i can do in that respect! so, hoping this has been nice eye candy for you, I loved working in pastels for a change, AND still am not out of baby yarns to use, lol Thanks for looking, hope it spurs you on to donate to your local favorite charity as well!!
  14. Hello Crochetville Friends, I recently joined Stitches from the Heart, http://www.stitchesfromtheheart.org/, as a volunteer area rep for the Phoenix, AZ area. This wonderful organization provides crocheted and knitted hats, booties, blankets, etc for babies in hospitals across the country. If anyone knows of any LYS or groups that may be interested in helping, could you please pm me? If you are located in the Phoenix AZ area ( I am in Tolleson ) and would be interested in getting together once or twice a month to work on projects for Stitches, please let me know. If you would like to just drop off ( or have me pick up ) items, that would be great as well. I'm fairly new to this area and work from home, so my contacts are somewhat limited. I am also new to doing this type of thing and could use all the help I can get. That being said, any and all help, suggestions, etc would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

    Yarn Over For Love

    In an effort to help those less fortunate than us, I am looking for people to dig into your hearts and even deeper into your yarn stash. I am looking for volunteers to make granny squares, to be pieced together, to make afghans for charity. Also anyone how would like to donate hats, booties burp clothes and any other baby items for hospitals would be very much appreciated. I have a few charities... in mind, but would love any ideas for more. The thought of one person making a whole blanket can be daunting, but if each of us made one or two squares, the task would take minimal effort. Of course, if you want to make a whole afghan that would be wonderful too! What if compassionate and creative women all over the USA donated only one 8 inch knitted or crocheted square and donated it? Or donated a set of hats booties and burp clothes? Can you imagine the number of people we could help? Please know that we deeply appreciate your contribution. Also know that you are making a difference in the life of someone else. http://yarnoverforlove.blogspot.com/ Facebook: Yarn Over For Love

We also make afghans, lap blankets, and chemo caps for chemo and dialysis patients in San Antonio. You dont have to live close to participate!

  19. Molly's Babies takes gently used dolls & teddy bears, cleans them up, fixes their hair, and then crochets outfits for them. Some dolls & teddy bears will also go with their own blankets, when available. Molly's Babies is a non-profit organization that needs help with doll blankets, hats, outfits, booties, bibs etc. and 4 inch squares (knit or crochet). Square colors are greens, blues, pinks, purples, reds, yellows, or a combination. pretty much any square will work...for boy's and girls. Doll blankets--large enough to cover a normal size doll Doll size bibs, hats, booties, outfits or gowns. You can get a good idea of the size of the dolls and learn how this all began on the website. http://mollysbabies.org/ One does not have to send a bunch of things. Even one bib or hat or square will help immensely. The mailing address is on the website or you can message me and I'll send it out to you. They are located in Connecticut.
