Stitchin for kids

The Doll Project began in the San Francisco area in 2009 when two grandmothers got together to deliver four dolls to a local children's hospital. Each of the dolls had ten home made outfits to entertain the young recipients who all required extended hospital stays. The project has grown as more grandmothers and their friends have joined the effort. As of year-end 2011, over 150 girls in three hospitals have received the gifts.

The award winning dolls, Les Cheries, are made by Corolle and are a perfect size for hospital stays.  The patients are 4 to 12 years old. The outfits include jeans, cord pants, sweaters, tops, shorts, skirts, dresses, and pajamas and robes.   

Additionally, toddlers receive a baby doll, Tidoo, also by Corolle, with a home made knit hat and flannel blanket for cuddling under their arm.

This also sounds like a great charity and I have not heard about Stitchin for Kids before but what a great idea to make doll clothes to go with a doll that will be donated to a girl that will be in the hospital for a while to get over their illness. I know it can get very frustrating to be in for a long time for their illnesses and having something to play with like a doll will make it a lot easier. This is a good way to use up that fabric just sitting around or your stash pile. Do something good with it and make some girl smile. Check out the web site.
