The sky’s kind of the limit for handmade items you can put in shoe boxes. Our church has put in handmade dolls, pencil pouches, sewing kits, the same kind of pillowcase dresses for Little Dresses for Africa. I know too that some people will make reusable pads with pouches for older girls. If it’s small and a repeatable project that won’t take too much time or resources to put together, it’s a good choice for a shoe box.

Little dresses for Africa, I enjoy making the little peasant dresses instead of the pillow case dress. (mailed 12 yesterday) I also make quilts for the Linus Project. I would like to know more about Operation Christmas Child. Our church sends shoe boxes, but we never put anything home made in them.

They are all new and around 10 different colours.
Please email if they would be of any use for your projects that you organise. Carolyn Lomax.

I have been making placemats for Meals on Wheels for a local senior center since 2019. I wonder if anyone else is making placemats for an organization?

I sew for a group called Dolls for Appalachia. We take gently used dolls, clean them up and sew a wardrobe or accessories for them. There is also a grup called Girls of Appalachia that accepts home sewn dresses. Both are under the charity Putting Action to Prayers in Kentucky.

I was at Fabric land yesterday and another customer was getting this lovely upholstery Fabric cut to make bags. It has vintage sewing machines, dressforms, all manner of sewing related stuff. At $20.00/ meter I didn’the have a clue what to do with it. I am going back today to cover my ironing board & 2 mini boards.TY TY.

I agree about varying things. I think it keeps you fresher when you come back to a big project that requires a lot of mental energy!

I’ve been doing some hand sewing on some felt stars for my Christmas tree, embellishing them with vintage buttons. It’s nice to break things up a bit by varying your projects. The embroidery is fun too!
