Patchwork Heart Potholders ~ Pay it Forward February

{Have you ever heard about a situation and it just breaks your heart and you feel like you HAVE TO do something about it?A few months back I met a lady, Lovely Reckley, and she told me how she goes to four different schools in Abaco and feeds 85+ children that would have otherwise had no lunch. For some of these kids, this is the only meal of the day.Lovely even takes food to some of them when school is out.That really broke my heart. I mean, I know there are kids all over the world that are starving, but when I realized there were children right under my nose it killed me. I kept wondering what I could do. I thought about offering to help cook, but cooking for so many mouths really overwhelmed me. Then I realized what a COMMITMENT this awesome woman had made to these children…..EVERYDAY!!!At Christmas, instead of giving gifts I gave a donation to her organization (and to our Humane Society) instead of buying things that people really didn’t need.But it kept tugging at my heart. So, I decided for the month of February I would post several heart themed items to my blog. They would be for sale, and I would give 25% of the cost of the item to Lovely, to help with her costs.I may post an item everyday or I may post several items a week…..I am really not sure, but 25% will go to “Feed the Children” in Abaco, Bahamas.I CANNOT imagine going without food, or only having one meal a day that I had to rely on someone else to bring to me, and these children shouldn’t have to deal with this either, so please help!}

Another quick post today for my heart item, since I am still suffering with a throat infection. I am feeling a bit better but my voice doesn’t want to seem to come back.
Today’s item is a set of Patchwork Heart Potholders.


The piecing is not exact since they were randomly pieced.
They are both 9 inches square, and have a hanger on the back.
The backs are Bahama Hand Prints, which is a locally made, screen printed fabric.


And dont worry about that white fabric…..they are totally machine washable.


They are $28 for the set, and 25% of that goes to Feed the Children Abaco.
They are listed in my Etsy shop HERE.
{this set of potholders has been sold πŸ™‚ THANK YOU!!!}


Have a great week!
