Japan

We loved making dolls for Haiti so much,
we simply had to do something for Japan.



Hurray for Dolly Donations, the blog
that connected us with the right people!

The kids helped me make three dolls
for displaced children in Japan:


repurposed pants and silk vest turned into Fuzzy Pink girl,










quilting scraps became Princess Leia Buns and Blue Bunnie.

(Thank you, Sharon for the beautiful scraps!)



We tied love notes to each doll


and said our farewells at the Post Office.

My hope is that three children
find comfort in the midst of hardship,
and that my three children understand
that they are not too small to give,
however small our gifts.
