Pink Slipper Project

Each year, hundreds of thousands of women and children are forced to leave their homes and seek safety and healing in shelters across the country. This year, you can make a difference in the lives of a few of those women and children and remind them that their sisters are thinking of them. They are not alone.Make Mine Pink and Quilt 'n' Stitch Marketplace are joining together to launch our much-anticipated Pink Slipper Project, and we hope you will join us.

The Pink Slipper Project is a project started by Joyce Lucas of Make Mine Pink. She was inspired by Terry Grahl of Enchanted Makeovers and all of the wonderful work she does to make the lives of Women and Children a little better living in shelters. We are going to provide hand crafted slippers to as many Women and Children as we can this winter. There are so many ways to help with this project. You can make slippers, donate materials and supplies or even money to cover shipping. Everyones contribution is important. Working together we can make a difference. Our first group of slippers will be going October 1st and we will be donating 80 pairs for women and 40 for children.

Above is a photo of a pattern you can download at http://www.pinkslipperproject.org/. Or feel free to use your own pattern. If you crochet or knit that would be wonderful also. The pattern here is a very simple awesome pattern Joyce created that is ONE seam. Yes, one seam and super easy! :) And as cute as can be. If you would like to help ..... please email Joyce at info@thepinkslipperproject.org

What an absolutely gorgeous and loving idea. I have downloaded the pattern. The slippers I see in the photo are just darling and I know will be appreciated by the women and children who receive them.
