Today we are doing another craft for Project Show You Care!  If you are not familiar with Project Show You Care, it's a series I started that features charities that accept handmade items for donation.  Today I want to tell you a little bit about Project Linus®

If you are not familiar with Project Linus®, they are an organization that accepts donations of blankets for children in need.  A child that might be in the hospital, a shelter, or just in need.  The blankets are to help comfort the recipients when they need it most.  

If you would like to know more about Project Linus®, please take a little time to check out their website.  They have locations located throughout the U.S. and you might find a chapter near you.  Also, if you would like to get even more involved, they are always looking for Chapter Coordinators.

They accept quilts, knitted and crocheted afghans, fleece blankets and more!  You can find links to their projects and patterns here:

I made the no sew fleece blanket for donation 
and you can see how I made it here:


Here is a direct link to the written directions for the No-Sew Fleece Blanket:

To donate, go to the Project Linus® website and find a chapter, or drop off location near you.  If you don't have a drop off location near you, you can always mail it directly to:

Project Linus National Headquarters
PO Box 1548
Belton, MO 64012-1108

Here is the label that you can include with your package, so they know we at the Craft Klatch community appreciate their efforts and the great work they do:




You can pull the label right from above, or download it here:  https://gum.co/HxofK
