CraftFoxes is proud to partner with Hopeful Threads and Sew for Kids to support their efforts to make handmade gifts for the families of the Pine Ridge and Rosebud Reservations in South Dakota. The mittens and hats pictured above were made in just a few hours by Lindsay, and she promises that just about anyone can make this simple sewing project!

Some handmade items you can make for the charity project with Sew for Kids and Hopeful Threads include the following:

- Diaper Bag (or backpack of comparable size)
- Changing Pad
- Blankets/Quilts
- Bibs
- Sleep Sack
- Towel & Washcloths
- Scratch Mitts, Sock, Booties, Caps
- Onesies, Sleepers, Gowns
- Baby Wash, Diaper Cream
- Teething Rings, Rattles or other infant toys
- Nursing Pillow (or pillow cover)
- Nursing Pads
- Nursing Cover
Some very easy items you can make that will make a big difference in the lives of these mothers and babies include these simple T-Shirt Baby Hats and T-Shirt Baby Mittens. If you have a spare T-shirt or two that you never wear any more, consider upcycling them into gifts for these families!

These simple sewing patterns are courtesy of "Generation T: Beyond Fashion" by Megan Nicolay, and published by Workman Publishing. Stayed tuned to Hopeful Threads later this month for your chance to win a copy of the book!

Hopeful Threads has also set up a project board on Pinterest to include tutorials that will be helpful for our sewing this month. Completed projects can be shared in the October Flickr Album.
Sew For Kids operates under the 501c3 charity Hearts of the Sacred Spirit, so your donations can be tax deductible. If you would like a receipt, please include a self-addressed stamped envelope and receipt request with your donation when shipped. Completed handmade items for these families can be shipped to Hopeful Threads, and you may email Kristy for a shipping address.

We hope you will join us and share your creativity this month!
