Sew Sew Sew for Pho for Three

At last month's meeting Teresa told us about her Pho for Three Fundraiser and her hope to have something made for all of the orphans in Tam Ky, over 100 children ranging from newborn to 17 years old. If you are interested in sewing something we will be accepting items at this month's meeting Thursday September 20th so you still have time to at least make a few diapers if you want to contribute.Teresa has friends going to Tam Ky at the end of the month and will be sending the first batch with them. It's important to note that Teresa will still be collecting items for a while to be sent at a later date in case you can't make it to this month's meeting.

Here are some of the tutorials Teresa has put together to make it easy for us. Note that the diapers are different then our American ones.

Items Needed

Messenger Bags

Pencil Cases

Zippered pencil case from Sew4Home

Pants and Shorts

Basic elastic-waist pants from Dana Made it (pattern here)

Simple Diapers

Simple triangles of cotton: Easily made by taking a 25-inch square, cutting it into two triangles and finishing the edges (serger or turned seams).

Have fun and we'll see you next week!
