Sew, What's New?

Curating sewing and quilting talent, techniques, and tutorials, since 1997.

*PATTERN NOW AVAILABLE! (see link below) Hope is a therapy, "Tatter Tot" that I designed for chemotherapy patients. She's completely hairless, wears a headscarf & has pale skin (compared to my dyed Tatter Tots!).

10% of proceeds benefits the Huntsman Cancer Foundation & another 10%, the Samaritan's Purse International Relief ! You can read more about the Huntsman Cancer Foundation in my blog section or by googling it. They're a fantastic organization!
I also started a new blog, Toy Society style, for this project & welcome anyone interested in this cause to join in!! You can visit it at to purchase Hope's e- pattern as well.

Oh that doll is adorable. You did an excellent job with her.

I think I will give that a try once I get my first few made up. The material store is just down from the hospital, so I can stop into the store and show them the tatter tots before I deliver them. Thanks for your suggestion.

Thanks Bonnie...great ideas, all! I also never thought to ask a fabric shop to help me defray costs! That would help a ton!

She is absolutely precious, Birdie! You know, you should get help from a hospital volunteers. Get each lady to each make 1 doll to start with so you'd have a small inventory to offer to the hospitals in your area. You might even get a fabric shop to donate some remnants and notions to help defray cost. It's a charitable donation for them and a Godsend for you. I would imagine pediatric onocologists might like a 'tatter tot' or two for their office. I think you're onto a good thing

I think it is great that we ladies can make some of these beautiful little dolls for the kids with cancer. I might make some with jeans/coveralls for the little boys. I cannot see any hospital treating children that will turn down your gifts. God Bless all you ladies who do this!
