Hi everyone! Here's our idea for the September challenge, courtesy of Jeanne:
"Fruit colored hats", that would include reds for strawberries and raspberries, blues for blueberries, black/blues/purples for blackberries, pinks, greens and whites for watermelons, yellows for lemons etc."
Feel free to let your creative juices flow by making fruit-colored hats, and you can embellish the hats too - my son S. suggests sewing little crocheted or knitted fruits all over them, as one idea. :-) Or there are free patterns out there for hats that look like fruit shapes -- lemons, strawberries, apples, and even veggies such as pumpkins would be fun!To clarify, we are asking for fruit-colored hats, not having to be a fruit-shaped hat -- sorry for any confusion there.
Ronda has asked for hats/beanies and jumpers/sweaters that would fit 2-6 year olds, keeping in mind that a 2-year-old's head is quite large, so if anyone would like to make and send jumpers/sweaters, please be sure that the head openings are large enough for them to fit comfortably over the head.
SQUARES ARE ALWAYS WELCOME AND NEEDED! Sandy shared earlier that we need 120 blankets for the KlipTown Community School, which is 4,200 squares, so if you would like to keep making squares, please do so! We can track hats/beanies, jumpers and squares this time.
Any other fruity ideas? Please share with us!
Please add up the numbers in our individual posts so we have a running tally of hats, squares, and jumpers.
Edited to add: We'll add to the totals in each post and not use a tracking spreadsheet this month, if that's ok with everyone. Thanks!
