Some Goodies for the Animal Shelter

Each year, I make some small items to be donated to one of the no-kill shelters I support (League for Animal Welfare).  These go on a craft table to be sold at their annual Christmas party.

Helen, my blogger friend in Australia, has sent me gifts on two different occasions and each time thoughtfully included the link for making the items.  One is a small notebook cover with a tutorial by Lara Cameron. For a 3×5 spiral notebook, I cut the cover and lining pieces 3-¾ x 11-½ inches.  For the pockets, I cut 3-¾ x 5-¾ inches.

Another really nice gift is a List-Taker from a pattern for sale by Jennifer Casa.

This cover includes space for a 5×8 inch pad and pen and has a large pocket for carrying fabric swatches, patterns, notes, etc.

My daughter donated some pretty cat and dog charms for the ties and assembled them for me.

I hope these cute covers in animal prints make a little bit of money for the shelter.

  1. These are all such nice items that you made to donate to the cause of humaine treatment for all animal and the fabric you used is darling,.sure to sell and bring in needed funds. Our Rusty was a rescue that we were lucky enough to find last December. He was my best Christmas present and I’m not sure who rescued who.

  2. I bet these make a lot of money! I’m so happy that you support animal rescue and no-kill shelters. We rescued our Maxamillion (because he’s one in a million) and he is the best, most well-behaved dog I have ever owned.

  3. These are wonderful. I’m sure they’ll raise a lot of money for such a good cause. My favourite are the Scottie Dogs – so cute with their little pointy ears and moustaches with all of the beautiful colours. The charms are an effective finishing touch.

  4. They are wonderful, and I’m sure they will help greatly. Smart animal shelter to have a sale this time of year, too!
