Project #33, Texas: Purple Stitch Project

From September 15 to October 15, 2012:

 Another Purple Project to follow a purple project…it just happens that way sometimes! Rev up the needles and hooks to knit purple fuzzies, cuddlies, and cozies for the Purple Stitch Project of Texas. This project was founded by Vickie Howell to bring more awareness to childhood epilepsy/seizure disorders.

The items made go to babies, children, and teens suffering these disorders as a way to remind them that they are not alone. Craftsy has some super cute free patterns specifically for the Purple Stitch Project, like this Ninja  
who is the official mascot to “give seizures the chop.” Items can be knitted, crocheted, or sewn. As far as I know, any yarn fiber can be used. The color of the finished objects must be purple, or predominantly purple. They can be mailed to:
 Purple Stitch Project 9901 Brodie Ln, Ste 160 #268 Austin, TX 78748 USA

All items should have the Purple Stitch "made by" tag on them, and should say "from Sharing Our Gifts" as well.  Have fun! Purple Power!
