5th Annual Craft for Shelters Day RESULTS!

 We crafted for 6 hours straight like a bunch of mad ladies, ha!  I'm very pleased with the finished items this year.  Sebastian stopped by Quality Sewing and Vacuum to count everything before we take all the items to Seattle Animal Shelter next week.

We completed:
                     - 26 bandanas
                     - 30 rope toys
                     - 9 crate beds
                     - 36 cat security blankets (new project this year!)



As usual, we had some very talented volunteers!  Check out the monster rope toys our friend Tammy made.  


Sebastian sure likes this rope toy but he knows there's another dog out there who could use it more.  Rope toys help give shelter dogs some comfort and something extra to chew on in their crates.


We had a new project this year that I loved - cat security blankets!  After I contacted the volunteer coordinator at Seattle Animal Shelter, I learned they had a huge need for these cat blankets.  The coordinator told me, "These are very special blankets… they will carry the cat’s scent with them to the new home and while they are in the shelter as their bedding is rotated and all other scents around them are replaced, the blankets will stay untouched. Think of them as destressing blankets more than for warmth… kitties will have other bedding for this purpose."

I love this idea.  Makes me wonder how many other shelters out there could use blankets like these.  They are only 15 inch squares and so easy to make.  We made some with one layer of fleece and some with double-sided flannel.  We also used a serger to finish the edges.  I totally recommend this project to anyone out there wanting to make items for shelter cats!


Cheers to National Craft for your Local Shelters Day!

XOXOXOXO,
Erika and Sebastian
