About a year ago, we were asked to design a project for Jade Sims book Craft Hope - Handmade Crafts for a Cause. Craft Hope is an organization that combines a love of crafting with a desire to help others. The hope is that the projects in this book will be made and donated to specific charities, to help make their mission a little bit easier.
Sewer extraordinaire Jody designed and made up this cute little apron using fabric from our first collection with Moda, Rouenneries. We chose The Food Project as a suitable charity for handmade aprons.The Food Project's mission is to grow a thoughtful and productive community of youth and adults from diverse backgrounds who work together to build a sustainable food system. The Food Project works with teens and thousands of volunteers on its farms to grow nearly a quarter-million pounds of food annually without pesticides and donates thousands of pounds of this food to local shelters.
If you would like to be the lucky winner of this wonderful book, as well as the Rouenneries material to make your own apron - please leave me a comment. Hopefully, once you see how easy the apron pattern is to sew, you will be game to make up a handful of aprons to send off to the Food Project - or a local charity of your choice. Merci!
