Alright, so I’m addicted to cute. has a problem I collect anything Hello Kitty, any stationery that’s tiny or shapen like food and I am constantly making purchases based on their cute factor.
I really like the look of tiny baby knits, but I don’t have a baby, don’t expect to be expecting, don’t know anyone who is and so I think the best option to feed my habit is to donate.Plus this way I’m being productive XD
I don’t want to do something like freecycle or craigslisting it off; I want to make sure it goes to people who need it. I’m paying for yarn and putting my time into it, right? I don’t want it to go to some well off mother with a love for handmade who just lacks the ability, and I don’t want to sell.I don’t want to give them to a thrift store so they can be sold either. I want whoever gets them to have them 100% free of charge.
This brings up a few questions:
What is the best material to make baby clothes out of for a low income mother? What items should I be making the most? Do I need to request permission from pattern writers before making knits to donate? -and- Is there an organization that specifically deals with pairing up items with people who need them?
