If you know me at all, you know I have a deep love for the orphans that my kids and I worked with in Vietnam. I always wish to do more. Always.
For work I follow Doohikey Designs (Shari designs the absolute cutest fabrics!) and she made note of this new organization of creators and designers working together to raise funds to help orphans around the world. I couldn’t help but volunteer.
So, that wallet design I’ve worked on will be released as a pattern for Create H.O.P.E. Designs, a downloadable PDF pattern. I’ll let you know when it’s up, but for now you can visit their website and see what they have at their Etsy shop.
From their site:
Create H.O.P.E Designs is an organization that was started in September of 2011 by a group of women with a collective desire to make a difference with their talents. It was obvious what could be done, we all shared something in common, we are designers. We are a collection of artists selling our patterns to those crafters in the world that share our need to beautify our surroundings. It was with this goal in mind that Create H.O.P.E Designs or Create H.O.P.E was launched. Our goal is to provide beautiful patterns or tutorials for a very affordable price. All of the designs are downloadable PDF files, ensuring that Create H.O.P.E will operate overhead-free. 100% of all funds generated will benefit designated foundations serving orphans and their communities.
