Sew for Japan

We ‘Sew for Japan’ today

As Japan begins its journey to rescue and restore its nation, people, homes… and more. The rest of the world is praying and hoping for them. And there are those who has generously donated, unselfishly volunteered and freely caring. I thought I should also play a part albeit small in contributing to render some help.

Popin organized a public crafting event Lasalle Singapore today from 10am – 4pm. So I thought we could sew to raise funds for Japan. I emailed some friends to gather some interest. 3 made it today, including myself, so that makes 4. 🙂 I used Chaco (my cat) as one of the stuffed toy and created Kibou the Owl as the other. Kibou means ‘hope’ in Japan. Owl is a symbol of luck in Japan too, so we thought the owl is very apt. All fabrics and materials used were donated by Goood Fabrics. My friends brought items like beads to accessorize the stuffies too.

We managed to make 12 in all, one of which we already sold at the event. So there are 11 left, all of which are placed on Goood Fabrics Facebook Album. Please bid generously. Tell your friends about it!

  • Each stuff toy starts with a minimum bid of $20.
  • Bidding starts tonight and will end on Wed, 23rd Mar, 11.59pm.
  • Shipping within Singapore is FREE. International shipping charges apply.
  • Stuff toy (softie) is lovingly handmade and ~7cm in height.
  • Winner will be provided with payment details after auction ends.
  • Please go to Goood Fabrics FB Album page to start bidding.

We started sewing around 11am today til 4.30pm. It was an intensive but fun day. We were beat at the end of the day although all we did was just sit down and sew. This is the first sewing get-together for Goood Fabrics. I think we will have another one next month again! I hate to sound abit auntie here but the sew-together was really fun and a great bonding time with my friends and sis. We were chatting, laughing, latte-ing, eating, sewing… all for a good cause. What a great way to spend a Saturday!
