Here is what the girls have been working on...


In my last post, I announced that Jeff, Jillian and Molly are going on a mission trip to Haiti this fall.  They have to raise all the money themselves, which is $1,500 each.  To help with expenses, we knew we needed to think of a fundraiser.

Two years ago, they made doll blanket sets to raise money to fund medical care for some sweet orphaned children in China.  The sets sold beyond our wildest dreams so we thought we would offer them again. 

They are such sweet little blankets and pillows! They will fit pretty much any doll. We tried to size them so that they can be used for average sized baby dolls, beanie babies (two will fit under the blanket), and can also fit an American Girl doll or Build-A-Bear if you don't want to tuck the blanket under them.

We have sets made in a variety of fabrics. Most of them are for girl dolls, but since we have some boy Build-A-Bears, we have a John Deere tractor fabric as well as cowboy (not yet pictured).  Most of the sets are made of flannel, although some have flannel on one side only.  You can double click on the photos to see them larger.  If the backing is different, I folded the corner over so you can see it. 

The name of the ministry they will be serving is called Haiti Hope,  www.haitihope.org .  The couple who run the orphanage are friends of our pastor and they have specific needs they have requested a team to fulfill.

Do you have any little girls on your Christmas list?  Or little girls with a birthday coming up?

We are selling the sets for $12, plus $3.00 for shipping.

We can take payments by Pay-Pal.  If that doesn't work for you, please leave a comment below with your email address and I will contact you.

Thank you so much!!  You will totally make the girls' day if you order a blanket set from them!



We have 10 of these

We have a limited amount of these and cannot get more fabric like this.
***UPDATE*** We are now sold out of this set.

We have enough to make about 15 of these

We have a limited amount of these and cannot get more of this fabric

We have enough to make 20 of these, I think

We have 6 of these
And for those who have little boy dolls, we have a limited amount of these.


I have spent a ridiculous amount of time trying to put a Buy Now button into this post, but it appears not to be possible.  Or maybe I am just not an HTML ninja.
Whatever...
I ended up being able to add the Buy Now button to my blog, so if you want to order, you will have to click HERE, which will take you to my site.   On the top right hand side, you will see a button that looks like this: 


Click on the button (on my blog--not this button--it's useless)  and it will take you to PayPal to pay via credit card.

Karin,

I would love one of the "B" sets (Chinese Girls) for Teddi! My second choice would be "F" (Gold silk). I just donated via Paypal. So proud of your girls! May the Lord bless and multiply your efforts!

Thanks!

I'm so proud of your girls. We would one of the "B" sets and if you are all out, we'd love one of the "E" ladybug sets.
