Expanding ideas for Cystic Fibrosis fundraising through craftwork

Current projects:  Elsa-like cape for my niece (it's being blocked, pictures coming soon)

Rose stuff: see below!

 

My rose sales have been going well, every year as I gear up for my Great Strides CF walk (see Why I Raise Money for Cystic Fibrosis Research) I sell many crochet rose pins and hairclips (see backs pictured on right), especially at my church and the school at which I work.  over the past two years, I have sold over 100 each year, raising quite a bit for the CFF, as I donate half of the sales to this worthy organization.  This year I raised over $2,000 and counting, in no small part to my rose sales and talks about CF in my community.

Sarah just turned 5 last Saturday, and I am rededicating my efforts to developing other ways to sell the crochet roses, or other products with roses on them.  "65 Roses" has become the name for Cystic Fibrosis, especially for those young children with the condition who find the technical name hard to pronounce.  As I mentioned in my last post, I am working on rose-print bowties, and very excited with the results.  

Another new product: a variation on a theme, if you will, are roses on headbands.  A coworker requested this, and the result is very cute, I have added them to my Etsy Site.  I am looking forward to other items I can attach them to, or other ways they can by presented, let me know if you have ideas.

 

May your crafting sailboat carry you through the stressful seas of life.
