Caring and Sharing

While so many of us love making things for ourselves and our families, many in the Lion community go further, creating for those in need. Join us in this section and be touched by these true stories of caring and sharing submitted by Lion Brand readers.

The church I attend; Westminster Presbyterian Church in Paducah, Ky has 3 charity projects. We make seamans scarves for the river workers, I use the Lion seaman scarf pattern with a bulky yarn. Our second project is making buntings along with hats and booties for premature babies. I use the Pound of Love most of the time. Our third project is making dishcloths for the Bellwood home. I use Lion Cotton. All of the projects I work on are crocheted.

I also make little birds. The pattern is just an egg shape with little wings and a beak. I use left over yarns to make the main body and I add little snippets of yarn (untwisted) for the hair. I put to waterbottle lids with beads, taped together, inside to make them a rattle. I stuff each bird and sew on the eyes, wings and hair. I give these to local charities that help new families with babies.

I have found great joy in making the items and giving them away. Just though you would like to know.
