Hello and happy Monday!
Have you heard about Softies for Mirabel? It is a handmade Toy Drive and is the brainchild of by Pip Lincolne from the ever fabulous Meet me at Mikes.
The Mirabel Foundation supports kids who are affected by parental substance use and their extended families and carers, it's a great way of giving something to someone less fortunate that you, and what is better than a handmade toy?
It can be sewn, knitted, crocheted, stitched... it just has to be safe for a child. It doesn't matter if you don't think your skills are good enough, I am sure they are.... every toy helps.
In December they fill the window of Meet me at Mikes with all the toys but this year they are going to be in the heart of Melbourne on Degraves st at the CAE which is fantastic.
So this year I am getting behind this project and I will be making some toys to send, if anyone fancies joining me maybe we can get together and have a Toy making workshop or something?!
Deadline is November 30th, address and details on the poster below!
Examples of last years and previous windows:
If you'd like to see some past examples, there is a Flickr group or you can search #softiesformirabel tag on instagram.
So watch this space and let me know if you are keen to get together to Craft for a cause.
