Type "Charity Sewing" into a google search and you will come up with millions of hits. It can be a bit overwhelming, but at the same time quite heartwarming! Hospitals, Nursing Homes, Cancer Patients, Pregnancy Centers, Homeless Shelters, Domestic Abuse Shelters and even Pet Shelters can always use donations that can be sewn or crafted. Sewing items for the troops or veterans is a wonderful way to thank the people that protect us and it's "sew" very much appreciated.
I have created a new tab up at the top of my blog entitled "Charity Sewing". You can find a large list of links to many organizations that offer free patterns for sewing for charities. I hope that you will find this to be a useful tool for searching for free patterns or to learn more about charity sewing.
As you all probably know, I am a chapter coordinator for my local Threads of Love. I am also a SAGA member-at-large, and enjoy using the Wee Care patterns that are offered. I also enjoy creating patterns and designs to share with those who do charity sewing for preemies. I recently created a smocked tapered bonnet in multi-sizes for preemies. I used my new pattern to teach my local Threads of Love chapter members how to smock. It was such a success that I decided to share my pattern. The pattern to this little bonnet is my gift to those who give the gift of using their sewing skills for charity.
