Crazy Wonky Heart Potholders

{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!}

Happy Monday everyone!!
I slacked off the end of last week on posting….sorry about that!! Will make up for it this week hopefully!  Thursdays I work at my husband’s business, so that day got away from me.  Friday I went into town to run a few errands and grocery shop and came home with a little foster puppy.  So my afternoon was spent doing puppy time 🙂  Very therapeutic!

My item for today is a set of potholders that I have named, Crazy Wonky Hearts.  They are bright, colorful, wonky and fun!!

The hearts are made from Jennifer Heynen’s, aka Jangles, first fabric line.  I have had these fabrics for a while and just couldn’t cut them because they were so pretty!!
I am glad I saved them for these potholders.  I think they are perfect!

These hearts are free pieced, no pattern, so one came out a different size than the other, but I think that gives them some fun character!

Who wants matchy-matchy anyway?
The hearts may be different sizes, but the potholders are both 9 inches square.

The backs have a hanger on one of the top corners.
These potholders are $28 for the set, and 25% of that goes to Feed the Children Abaco.
Later today I will get them in my Etsy shop……{HERE}
Or you can message me on my Bahama Dawn Facebook page…..{HERE}

Have a beautifully creative week!!
