Project 32

UPDATE: All 32 patterns have been given away. But I will be writing about Project 32 all week, so if you want to read more, check back!

Today is the first day of this year's Project 32, where I commit to do 32 random acts of kindness the week of my birthday. Last year I did this and it was the most rewarding birthdays I've ever had. If you want, you can read about it here.

I've got a list of possible random acts, but I'll be praying and watching this week to find those who might need a little something to lift his/her spirits. And of course involving the kids as much as possible. Maybe one day they will want to do this instead of get birthday gifts (I can dream, can't I???).

To kick it off (and because this was so fun last year), I'm giving away patterns to 32 lucky people. There are four patterns to choose from:

  • Reversible Pouch Sling-pattern works for all sizes (make great gifts!)
  • Flip Flop Skirt-girl sizes 12 months-5T
  • Cinch Skirt-girl sizes 6 months-8 years
  • The Favorite Skirt-a women's skirt pattern, sizes XS-XL (all sizes are included in pattern)
You can see them here. All four of them are full of pictures and step by step instructions, so even if you haven't sewn much (or ever), these are great to start with.

To get your free pattern, just leave me a comment with your email address and choice of pattern. I'll be giving away patterns to the first 32 people who comment.

I remember reading about this project last year. Such a wonderful idea! I'm excited to see what you come up with. I've only done 1 crafty thing with a sewing machine in my life so if these are as easy as you say, I'd love the flip flop skirt!

Miss having you in the ward...aliwsnow@gmail.com

Ooooh, can I get the cinch skirt one? (And since you're in a giving mood, since I found out I was having a girl and I have a dozen cool t-shirts I don't use, I also want you to teach me how to make the dress out of an adult size t-shirt. I think the one you made was green...? ringing any bells?) You know I don't sew.....Have a great 32!

I hope you have a wonderful birthday. I really am going to do this when my birthday comes around again. My GS troop is doing the same kind of thing with friendship bracelets for every act of kindness or good deed they will give them the bracelet. Hope you have a wonderful day.
