I came across this while having my coffee and looking at my Reader. Seems pretty interesting and if I can get caught up on my orders before the cut off date I plan to crochet a purple ninja plush! Also, I just copy and pasted straight from the page so if the links don't work, the above link should take you directly to the page <3
Plushie Drive to Benefit Camp Brainstorm!
Alright, I know I just launched Purple Stitch Project a couple of days ago, but I’m already coming to you guys with a need. Next month in Bastrop (you know, where the HUGE fires wiped out 4,000 homes last year) there’s going to be this great camp hosted by The Epilepsy Foundation of Central & South Texas
in partnership with Texas Parks & Wildlife. Camp Brainstorm
is a 5-day experience for kids, ages 8-18 who have seizure disorders. It’ll be a wonderful experience for the 40+ kids they’re expecting — one that I’d like to make even better by supplying each kiddo with their very own handmade plushie, courtesy of Purple Stitch Project. To make this happen though, I need your help! I’m asking that you knit, crochet or sew 1 (or more) plushie to donate for the cause. Who’s with me? Perhaps the PSP mascots, the Purple Ninjas will convince you?
Here’s the scoop:
: Any plushie (animal, doll, robot, etc.) made or embellished with PURPLE yarn or fabric. See the photo links within this post for pattern suggestions, see more ideas in our Craftsy pattern archive
, or work from your favorite pattern. Just keep in mind that the kids at this camp aren’t little-bitty, so let’s try and stay away from anything that seems too babyish.
WHEN: Finished plushies are due to me by July 20th.
WHERE: Send items to:
Purple Stitch Project

WHY: Because handmade = love.
