The Special Olympics fundraiser my sister and I volunteered to help is coming up this Saturday. Connie is working on stained-glass pieces. My own efforts involve my sewing machine.
Clutches from the Bend the Rules book seemed like a good idea—something that doesn’t involve high costs in materials. Keeping costs low means being able to price an item so it sells faster. That equates to more money raised for the Special Olympics in my mind.
Some of the clutches use a bandana-type print along with a checked lining fabric. I have the same fabrics in other colors, too.
My sister told me not to make too many things and that there will be a lot of motorcycle people there. I’m not sure why this is important or even whether it makes a difference, but I’ve tried to take that into consideration. And what exactly does one make for Harley people? I just don’t know. Connie suggested things with skulls.
So, I’ve made some using the skull theme. The whole skull thing kind of feels creepy to me when it’s not Halloween—that’s the time when I can happily embrace such images.
Time is running out for me getting these projects done. I’ve reserved Friday for making labels and packaging each item.
Do you make things for charitable functions? I have two sewing days left. If you think the clutches aren’t a good idea, please quick let me know.
