 project must-knows 

1. Burrito Pillow Case- These are for all ages 5-18. All pillows are all the standard size pillow no matter the age you are making for.  It is appreciated if fun fabrics are used, and kids love licensed prints like Marvel, Comic Book characters like Batman and Superman, Harry Potter, Disney.  

  • The pillowcase is made from three coordinating materials. The finished size should be 20”-21” wide by 30-32” long.  

  • Please use soft, non scratchy material: woven quilter’s cotton, woven cotton blends as well as flannel prints and solids. Fabrics to avoid would be ones with drugs, alcohol, weapons, religious, or holiday prints.  Please honor this charity’ request of not using fabric with the words mommy, daddy or family.

2. Warm Winter Items for Children Ages 5-18- Winter is approaching and they would like to put hats and mittens/gloves into each backpack. They need a variety of sizes and colors so they have items for all children. 

  • Hats & Mittens/Gloves 

  • Fleece or Knit/Crochet
