In Search Of . . .

some ideas. I could use some help here.

I sponsor a Compassion International child in Haiti. She's about 7. I'd like to send her some homemade things, but what?

The problem is that it has to be flat. I have to be able to fit it into an envelope that's only 1/4" wide.

I've already sent paper dolls.

Any ideas?

Meanwhile, I'm buried under Barbie's dress re-do for a choir concert. It's "The Ed Sullivan Show" and she's singing "People" (by Barbra Streisand). She found a vintage dress online and asked me to copy it. I'll have to let you know if I actually get to doing it -- although I got a $30 wedding gown to revamp and lots of black tulle and satin. So far, schoolwork has prevailed, but I'm hoping to get to it in the next day or so.

More later.



  1. Fabric doll filled with fiberfill that will pack flat? Doll clothes? Hand-bound notebooks and colorful pens/ pencils, stickers? "Magic wands" made of various unfinished natural wood pieces? I could go on but have no idea if I'm even in the right neighborhood of ideas for you. Good luck. :)

  2. Hi Jen, maybe this link can help you to find out new ideas to send flat.

    Greetings from Spain. Keep sewing and recording :)


That'll be two cents for your opinion please. : )
