7 blankets sewn for The Red Island Project.

7 blankets for the Madagascar newborns
About a week ago I told you about The Red Island Project, in this post. So far, I have sewn  blankets for the newborns that they will be helping bring into the world in Madagascar. I have more fabric, but this is what I could do with the thread that I have. I will be getting more serger thread tomorrow.

I have a couple patterns and plan to make clothes for the newborns that The Red Island Project will give to the new moms.

I encourage you to visit The Red Island Project.

If you are interested in supporting their mission, there is information on their site.

If you are interested in making blankets, clothes, or hats for the newborns. Please email me and we can figure it out.

    1. Thanks Teri. It is a small way to help out and the women will know that these were made by hand for their precious baby.

    1. Thanks, Meriel. I make the blankets out of 1 1/3 yards of fabric and round the corners so that I can serge all the way around. It doesn't take long. I always look for flannel on sale when I buy fabric.
