Craft Hope Project 12 - Bracelets
Have you heard about Craft Hope? It's a project to bring crafters together to make items for those less fortunate. Project 12: Orphan Outreach is going on right now. The project is making bracelets for orphans in Russia. Something small to bring a smile to a child's face. Any kind of bracelet will do. The ages of the children that these bracelets will go to are 4-18. The deadline to have them sent in is June 15th, 2011. Here is the address:

Please mail completed bracelets to:
Carin Vogelzang
630 Griswold SE
Grand Rapids, MI 49507

Company Overview:
Craft Hope is a love inspired project designed to share handmade crafts with those less fortunate. It is our hope to combine our love for crafting and desire to help others into a project to make a difference around the world.
Craft Hope is run by Jade Sims from her home in the hill country just outside of Austin, Texas. While juggling three kids and a laptop, we are changing lives!
Spreading seeds of hope one stitch at a time.
I am going with simple and quick in hopes of making a bunch of these. I'm getting my kiddos involved with the bead bracelets. Threading pony beads onto stretchy cord. Quick and Easy. I'm also going to go back in time to junior high and make some Friendship Bracelets for the older ones.
Here are some links to great patterns/tutorials to give you some ideas, if you're looking for something a little different:
Jennifer at JCasa *handmade has a very cool pattern for the Mama Chic Wrist Cuff that can be adjusted to fit a child
They have instructions on making Friendship Bracelets at How To Make Jewelry
Tracy at the Make Bracelets Blog has me drooling over all of her delicious patterns
