Over the last few months I have been working on a few projects for Collaborate for a Cause - a charity auction held on Facebook. The aim of 'Collaborate for a Cause' is to promote friendship, understanding & fun throughout the facebook handmade community, while raising money for worthy causes.
I have been lucky enough to work with some fantastic women this year and I absolutely LOVE the items that we've created.
My first collaboration is with Lucid Doll and Schooled Up Hair Accessories. We have each created a butterfly inspired piece, with all proceeds going to Mums Like Me. I just love how they all look together. :)
My next two collaborations are with Liz from Emit Photography and Design... all proceeds from these auctions will be going to Ronald McDonald House - Newcastle. These collaborations were a little different. I took this canvas design....
and turned it into fabric! Liz then made a satchel and notebook cover with it... I've been wanting to do something like this for a long time, but when you can't sew like me, it's a bit hard. I think this has definitely motivated me to learn though!
And here is my second collaboration with Liz from Emit Photography and Design... it also features a canvas design of mine which has been put on fabric.
The auction starts this Friday night (27th July) at 8pm and goes until 8pm on Sunday night, so there is plenty of time for you to bid. Make sure you stop by and check out the Collaborate for a Cause Auction album as there are some absolutely FABULOUS one-off items up for grabs.
