The deadly tornado outbreak of last April destroyed or heavily damaged more than 12,000 homes in Alabama alone. Our friend Jade Sims over at Craft Hope is bringing out the best in the crafting community once again with a new project collecting homemade stockings for families who lost everything and will still be in the process of starting over when Christmas comes this year.
A little holiday crafting might be just the thing to take your mind off the late summer heat and humidity, so hop on over, join in the fun, and make Christmas morning brighter for thousands of children. To help out, we’re giving away three fun, fresh stocking projects from recent and upcoming books.
Made for quick crafting, stitch up this fast and fun Hexy Stocking.
Created by Cathy Gaubert, this little Let it Snow stocking is the perfect way to use up felt sweater bits. Or have fun with felt baubles with this simple and scrappy Cheery and Bright stocking by Laura Howard.
Craft Hope also has a Facebook page now where you connect with others participating in the project. If you’d like to read more about Jade and her growing international community of crafters helping others, check out this interview.
