Carolina Pregnancy Center ~Sew-a-thon~

Girls Night Out- Sewing Style!

This is what I did on Friday night...along with 11 others (and a tiny baby)!
We had a Sew-a-thon for our local Carolina Pregnancy Center and made burp cloths for the Earn While You Learn Store.

Everyone had a job- ironing, cutting, pinning, sewing, or finishing. We had four sewers and eight "preppers." The wheels moved a little slow at the beginning, but by the end of the two hours, we were turning out some burp cloths!

This is what sewing is to me...using my talent for someone else's benefit! The moms who come to CPC come from all walks of life- all ages- all colors- all situations. Moms earn "Mommy Money" to spend in the Earn While You Learn Store by attending classes, staying in school, making doctor appointments, and going to church. Donating these burp cloths will add to the wonderful things already available to the moms in the store.

By the end of two hours, we had 31 completely finished burp cloths and at least 20 more that are cut, pinned, and ready to be sewn. We used five yards of chenille!

We used Dana's burp cloth tutorial- it's super easy, but sometimes it's nice to read it for yourself.

Til next time!
God bless,
