My Journey Home

My Life. Beautiful, Ugly, Unfiltered.

be-a{cause}i like to craft

we all have causes that are near and dear to our heart & with as much attention as our cute little ones get with all of their adorable handmade accessories, I thought it would be a great idea to merge the two together!

My Cause: Human Trafficking

Each year, in Thailand alone, 200,000 children, ages seven to fifteen, are sexually exploited and trafficked. That is 23 children every hour. My fabric for this project came from a t-shirt that I had from Serving Our World, the organization Josh and I worked for when we lived in Thailand as missionaries.

(1)what you will need:scissors, hair clip, felt, hot glue gun, and your choice of “cause” related fabric. (2)Cut the fabric into tw0 long strips like this and sew a gathering stitch. (3) gather and glue the two pieces (each as a half) onto a medium sized circle of felt. insert a brad, button or gem for the center(or not?) and attach clip to the back with hot glue and smaller circle of felt. (4) finished product!

Who wouldn’t want to hear what this little cutie pie has to say??

If you have something you have crafted for a cause, or you’d like me to craft something for your cause— email me! I’d love to feature you and yours.

I can’t wait to hear from you!

    Hi, you so very creative and have a beautiful Model!!! Gdaughter Astaire. I hope this is something we’re doing together for the Good Life Home Kids and those as you put it are in their 23rd hour and need us all to come together to make whatever we can do be more important then anything. Bless you
