Hares for Haiti and Fabric Stacks

A good friend of mine is headed to Haiti next week to provide dental care for an orphanage.  She is taking a whole suitcase full of toys for the kiddos.  For my contribution, I am making stuffed rabbits tonight hoping they will find a child to love.  The pattern is by Martha Stewart and found here: Stuffed Menswear Bunny | Step-by-Step | DIY Craft How To’s and Instructions| Martha Stewart.

I have also pulled together a few fabric stacks for Sophie’s Noodlehead Cargo Sew-a-long (C’est la vie: { CARGO DUFFLE SEW ALONG: PART I: choosing fabrics / choisir les tissus }.  My fabric stash is overflowing a bit so I decided if I was to participate, I would have to use the fabric I have on hand.  The first pile includes a brown organic cotton canvas from Marcus Fabrics and two prints from Birch’s Charley Harper line.

The second stack includes an old favorite Robert Kaufman pear print as well as one from Carolyn Friedlander and a grey cotton canvas.

The last grouping is probably my fave because it makes no sense at all and is ugly/pretty. It includes Glimma from Lotta, another Carolyn Friedlander print and a linen in putty. I think I may also use some of my recycled leather for accents on this last bag.
