More Women on a Mission

Once a month a group of us get together to make things for charity. Although we are all part of the Kingwood Area Quilt Guild we rarely do quilt projects.

Last night was a perfect example of the type of projects we tackle. We made house slippers for a local shelter.

Based on a pattern originally focused on women and children in shelters in NYC, we made 18 pairs of house slippers, out of a friend's fleece stash, for our local shelter.

Don't they look great!

We used three layers of fleece for the sole and two layers for the upper... any more layers and our sewing machines were very unhappy.

This an easy sew and the slippers are a quick gift.
Even though the big freeze is over for this area I think these will still be appreciated and used by the shelter patrons.
I think I better make a pair for myself.
